Windows 7: Windows can't find my Avast install

Windows can't find my Avast install

I have started getting a message in message centre that I have no AV software installed, I have had Avast installed since i installed the OS but there is no way to tell Windows to ignore the problem.
I can turn off notification but do not want to.
I have system images from earlier dates that i can restore to but do not want to do that if there is an easier option
