Use a custom install. Some items will always be installed on the drive where your Operating system resides.
Time to upgrade to a larger drive or, move some stuff over to the other drive.

Even if you install avast on a different drive (some elements are always going to be on drive C), if there is less than 15% free space this will impact on system performance.

So as Bob mentions you really should be looking at upgrading to a larger drive.  There is software out there that can make an exact copy of your C drive and can copy an exact copy of it into the new larger drive.
