How to get rid of Avast! Gadget forever?

Every time I have to to close the gadget on my desktop. I uninstalled the Gadget but it keeps appearing. There's no option in Avast to turn it off. Any suggestion? I don't want anything "useless" on my desktop

It won't uninstall the gadget if you uninstall it from the Gadget Pane itself. Have to do it form Avast in Programs and Features - Change. Uncheck it there and let it configure.

Logging off forever
Hi I have a problem that when I shut down (or log off) my laptop it stays on logging off screen. I tried waiting for about 30 min before I just forced power off. It seems this happens when Windows Explorer is acting strangely (taking a lot of time to load some folders, not loading some icons)....
