Avast making internet slow

So I recently installed Avast antivirus and it works really well except it slows down my internet and makes my ping higher. Is there any solution to this?

You can try remove the Avast Internet plug in.

Open Internet Explorer, Click on the "Settings Cog" (top right)
Then click on "Manage Add-ons"

New Window Should open, Under Toolbars and extensions, Look for Avast, highlight it, Then click disable,
If there is not a Avast Add-in, Then perhaps disable the Proctection, Just to test if it is Avast causing pages to load slower.

I use Chrome and denied the installing of the extension. It's not just my browser, my internet is slow in general.

disable the protection temporary whilst you test to see if AVAST is the root cause of this.
