Have you tried scheduling a boot-time scan with Avast? It scans your HDD before Windows can boot up.

Just start up avast, click on the menu arrow, select "Schedule Boot-Time Scan", click "schedule", and reboot.

Avast is only as efficient as the last time you updated your anti virus definitions

and for the ad-aware , that is a spyware program and will not remove a trojan, only spyware..
