In my attempt to run the combofix software it has asked me to uninstall AVG. Is this normal? Also, if I uninstall, can I save AVG so I don't have to completely reinstall it again? My current issue is the computer screen continues to crawl up and down mostly when trying to use email but it also happens in other applications. Am I on right track?

Combofix should not be run without experienced assistance, or without a clear idea of what the problem is. It would be better to provide a clear description of what is happening, how long it has been happening, and whether or not you think you have an infection.

AVG can frequently interfere with certain tools and may need to be removed if those tools become necessary.
