No is the harder part.  The boxes are very hard to see, but there is a green check mark in the box beside Wi-Fi Inspector.  This check mark needs to be unchecked or removed.  By doing this, it will remove the Wi-Fi Inspector component all together from Avast and thus causing you issues later on the Troy University Networks.  See illustration below:

 

Once you have removed the check mark make certain to click Change.  You will be required to Restart once the changes have been made.

 

Below are screenshots of what Avast Protection Tab looks like “Before” removing the check mark and “After” check mark has been removed:
