Does the fix now button work in the Avast GUI ?

Go to add/remove programmes
Select Avast as if you are going to uninstall
From the menu that appears select "Repair"

And can you confirm that the right click menu still does not have an open with option

A reasonable alternative to MBAM is Superantispyware free

Give that a whirl and let me know what you think
