If you want to run Avast rather than AVG, I would recommend just removing AVG.
Click on the Start orb (button), then click on "Control Panel". In Control Panel, click on Uninstall a Program in the Programs section (In classic view, double click on Programs and Features").
In the window that opens, locate and click on AVG, then click on the Uninstall/Change link that will appear in the window's toolbar. Follow the prompts to uninstall AVG.

Uninstalling AVG should not cause problems with your computer unless there are other problems present on your computer.
You should only have one Anti Virus application installed on your computer as they conflict with each other causing problems. This is what wannabe1 is suggesting.
Ending the process tree or ending the process will stop parts of the software temporarily, this also can cause problems with your computer.
If you don't feel comfortable uninstalling AVG (as per the above instructions), you should ask someone with experience to help you, or continue using AVG and uninstall Avast.

That said, you can stop the AVG from starting with Windows by disabling it using the Microsoft Configuration Tool. Click the Start orb and type msconfig in the Search Field...then click the msconfig link at the top of the results (top of the menu).
In the Configuration window, click the Startup tab. Locate the AVG entry in the list and remove the tick from the box next to it...click Ok. Reboot.
When the machine starts, you will be told there was a configuration change. Tick the box in this window to Not show this message again and click Ok.
AVG will no longer start when Windows starts.
