did you try removing your old avast with the removal tool before installing the new?
read instructions.....must be run from safe mode.  http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

also, have you removed any previous used AV before you installed avast?
did you run removal tools to clear any leftover files that may conflict?

I don't know where you get this little gem from, I certainly haven't seen any slow response after either of these installations. Wouldn't it be better to try to find the cause of the slow response.

Some information on your system might help Operating System, CPU, RAM ?

What security software is also installed, firewall, anti-spyware, etc. ?

What are you doing when this slow response is experienced.
Windows 10 Home 2004 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.1.2449 (build 21.1.5968.561) UI-1.0.597/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
