File purpose and description:
Avp.exe is a program that would have been installed by you at one time or another, it would not have been installed on your computer when you first purchased it. The actual disk location is also listed below, always verify where its located on your hard drive, as this makes sure it is not spyware or adware simply placed elsewhere on your computer, and using the same name in an attempt to fool you. This program is from Kaspersky antivirus and antispyware. It provides security services for your computer just like most of the other antivirus and antispyware related programs. Note also whenever you have a really short name, like avp.exe, its possible many other software vendors may also use this same name. This file is considered safe and is not spyware, adware, or malware related. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, avp.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of avp.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
