I was using Avast Free Antivirus, and for a while my PC was slowing down, there were many games I could hardly play at all, they were lagging and freezing, downloads were ceasing (It's probably not the right term, excuse my English). Yesterday I saw this in my task manager :

I tried fixing it (there is a post that explains how to do it in this forum), and it didn't help at all. So I removed it, and it's like my PC came to life. I could play Outriders for the first time without crashes and hours of loading screens, downloads were finishing. So now I don't have an antivirus at all. Is there any chance to go back to Avast ?
Thanks in advance.

- OS..? (32/64 Bit..? - which SP/Build..?)
- Other security related software installed..?
- Which AV(s) did you use before Avast..?
