In the long run it will.

Newer versions of anti-virus products typically include improvements in technology, methodology, scanning engine, malware detection and removal, etc.

Rather than using an older version of avast!, you could switch to another anti-virus solution which may perform better with your system....see Choosing an Anti-Virus Program.
