Welcome to the forum.
The system requirements on that page are correct, but I would suggest that the minimum RAM requirement stated, of 128Mb, is not nearly enough for a computer running XP or later. 1 or more Gigs is much more appropriate.
128 would be the share required for Avast after the operating system and other programs are running.

What are your system specifications?
WindowsXP Home SP3,Avast Free 5.1.889,Windows Firewall, Autorun Eater,Firefox w/Noscript+ /Adblock+/Better Privacy, IE8 all zones except MS Update set to "untrusted" settings,MVPS Host file.SecuniaPSI.

It won't be bad, on contrary.
Although you would be able to run avast in that conditions, more RAM will help for sure.
