|I actually have another anti-virus program, McAfee Virus-Scan Enterprise(althogh my subscription expired and I did not renew it). Even though it hadn't been updated, it ran an automatic scan and picked up avgamsvr.exe as a Trojan. It might be a false alarm, but I'm not entirely sure.|

|It would only be using a lot of the CPU if the scanner was currently running. If it says 98% and the scanner isn't running, check that it's not another file NAMED the same as AVG Nancy|
|It chugs system. Wish my company didn't make us have it installed with current configuration. When used with Outlook it drains performance, often consuming 45-50% of CPU cycles (XP, Dual 2.66 GHx Xeon, 2GB RAM) RandomAccess|

Thats why it makes problem while we want to load any other program like Adobe Illustrator, AutoCAD, Corel Draw and so on. Because they required memeory but avgamsvr.exe occupy too much memory spaces continuously. Chandresh Kesri|

|It is part of AVG's antivirus programs and it is impossible to remove even using AVG's removal tool. It is dangerous because it can interfere with the functioning of other anti-virus programs like McAfee. Due to it being hard to completely uninstall AVG, I advise others to never ever use their software. Ever. Anthony Barnes|
