You don't specify which browser you are using?

You should be able to disable/uninstall using the Browser extension settings.

Control Panel>Select Avast>Change>Remove Browser Protection.

I'd recommend keeping it though since it helps keep you protected and has tracking information blocked.

The plugin doesn't slow the browser... the Web shield could affect it minimally but not much to see a substantial difference.
