No, you'll probably have to download and install it again.

You can't recover the password if you no longer remember it because the software is not configured with a tool for this purpose. Just remove the antivirus from your computer using Avast Uninstall Utility and run CCleaner to to make sure that there are no leftover registry keys in your system. After that, reboot your PC and download and install the latest version of the program from the official web page.
