I noticed that my PC was running a little slow so I opened the task manger and looked at the processes and this one is using 90-98 percent of the CPU, is this normal? Dave

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.
as ticker said, also a very small resource hog Cpt_Howdy
part of an anti-virus program. anti-virus programs sometimes report other anti-virus programs as viruses or trojans.

AVG antivirus stuff, it all good RENO
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
It make momery problem. its file size is directly propertional to time. I am using Adobe Illustrator 10, which required some memory spaces. 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
safe, part of AVG, uses a lot of OS paged pool memory though, can cause crashes with source based games  See also: Link Dan
It is loaded on my computer and blocks my SMTP server. If I use the task manager to stop it from running, my email (Outlook 2003) works great. Daniel L. McGrew
It slows down my computer during the update process. You can avoid the slowdown by rebooting as soon as the update file is 100% downloaded. dave

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
