The avast screen saver isn't on by default so you (or someone who has access to your computer) must have set it up as your screen saver.

Just go into the windows screen saver set-up and change it to your normal screen saver or disable screen savers.

The avast screen saver is no different from a normal screen saver if you are working then it isn't so I don't know what it is you are describing.

Sometimes, when avast is scanning a big file with the screen saver module, could happen that the screen saver quits and the scanning is being done yet. But, generally, few seconds are enough to finish this operation and the avast message gets off. Which is the file name displayed?
