Besides unchecking HTTPS scanning, on "install" use CUSTOM and uncheck "NG" in the Tools section of the Avast installer.
You can do a Forum search on NG but here is summary: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=154857.msg1125734#msg1125734
It definitely impacts performance.
The combo of not having the HTTPS & NG your system should run fine.....you can always go back and change.

I reinstalled Avast! using uninstall tool. A few days worked, but now it's blocking internet access again after a few minutes even if "Enable HTTPS scanning" is unchecked. Do you know if I can disable NG from settings?
