First of all, that's weird and I have no idea how to fix it.
Second of all, try using a shortcut on your Desktop or pin it to your Taskbar and give us the results from there.

It should be in one of your program files folders in your hard drive.

If you have two virus scanners, that causes problems because they will never like each other. Uninstall Avira and follow any instructions prior to the uninstall. After you do that, rebooting is probably a good idea then try it again.

Even with Avira being disabled, it's still "there". Manually uninstall it if you don't want problems. It's better being safe than sorry in this situation. It should not be invisible in your tray icons unless you made it behave that way in the taskbar properties.
