Ever since i downloaded Avast anti-virus it's been making my internet bloody slow and i always have to stop all the scanning. The av program can't even be shut down and this pissed me off always.
What should i do about this??

Its not meant to be shut down, otherwise theres no point in having / using it

Right mouse on the a in the taskbar / and disable what you dont use with the top option. Just dont disable everything, or it'll disable it altogether

Disable the webscan option

But sometimes my internet's as good as disconnected cause pages don't even load. I have to stop the scanning altogether before it works.
