avast is not using the gpu to scan.
I suggest you follow the instructions:

Hi lets ensure that there is no malware first

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
 
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Select  additions at the bottom
  • Press Scan button.

  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from. 
  • Please attach both logs generated.

GPU = Graphic Processing Unit
As far as I know avast doesn't use it except for showing the screensaver.
The scan (if enabled) when the screensaver is running is using the CPU.
