Don't waste money on it.
There are plenty of free applications that do the same.

You can go into Control Panel/Programs(add/remove)/Avast and choose "Change" from the installation options.
Make sure GrimeFighter is 'not ticked' in the "tools" (middle) Column. :)

Just to chime back in, I really love Avast and i think it's one of the best AV out there , I am just a little shocked that they would bring out GrimFighter which to me seems like a beta version ..Or maybe it's a third party company which screwed up ??
However I am glad that there is an option to change the product otherwise it would be forced to the OS.
