Hi TheOwner,
aswEngSrv.exe process is sandboxed scanning server process which protects uses again exploitation of our scanning engine.
In process explorer you can see its limited privileges and access rights in security tab.
This feature is in testing phase and is available only in the Czech republic right now but we plan release it for all users.

Assuming you are referring to process New process aswEngSrv.exe.  You run the risk of damaging the Avast program, best not to change anything by disabling processes or deleting anything protection-wise.
See this thread starting with reply # 22:  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=226462.msg1501434#msg1501434
Note igor's replies on the same thread # 25, # 29, # 31, and also # 34.
See also your reply # 36 in the that thread. 
Igor's reply # 25 needs to be taken into consideration before you do anything here:  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=226462.msg1501441#msg1501441
