Try disabling rootkit shield + anti exploit shield.

It would be helpful to gather some information before making any changes.

I would suggest leaving it alone and doing a screenshot of the Avast alert window (with the Details option open).  That may well pinpoint the shield.

Then and only then disabling one Shield option at a time, again to try and pinpoint the shield involved.
