HI and welcome Mike,
I presume you are trying to make AVAST! a bit less taxing on your system and you picked out the one doing all the work, if you go messing with that file you may as well uninstall the whole program.
At least you had the sense to ask before you went ahead and did it. ;D

Chef, as other said, ashserv.exe is the kernel of avast! antivirus. Without it, without avast, without protection.
