The main tasks of the E-Mail Scanner process in AVG Internet Security software are to add the e-mail scanning feature onto the suite and to scan incoming and outgoing e-mails to protect the e-mail folder from spam e-mail attachments. AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o., was founded in Czechoslovakia in 1992 by Jan Gritzbach and Tomas Hofer. Its original name was Grisoft until the "AVG" brand was adopted based on its "Anti Virus Guard" software product. They did not begin marketing their products in the United States until 1998. In 2012, the E-Mail Scanner could be downloaded as a standalone program, as well as being part of AVG Antivirus 7.0. In their FAQ pages, this module name is listed as part of AVG 2011 under "legacy products," as one of multiple process files for which communication must be allowed if the computer uses a third-party firewall or third-party network traffic detector. If you want a detailed security rating about your avgemc.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager. www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/avgemc.exe.html 

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

Completely legitimate so long as you actualy are running the rest of AVG. Can cause some slight delays with sending/recieving mail but this is negligable and harmless. Nick

conflicting information regarding this process Dr. Leonard
antivirus with avg muy bueno y gratuito vivian wienholds
It is suppose to scan emails (in/out) but because it keeps running even when the email software is 'off', it is clear that it is performing some 'extra curriculum' activitaties. It could very well be reporting 'key words' content on the emails back to Grisoft (who makes AVG) - nothing is free - so it would not surprise me Mr. Mike PC
its an email scanner, but lately its been funning my cpu 100% mikey_albany
This file is part of AVG (Email scanner for Microsoft Exchange Server). It takes up huge amounts of processor time (between 50% and 98%) when a new email is delivered via Microsoft Exchange POP server. Lloyd D

It depends. Something a lot of people don't know is that when you install avg for free, it permanently writes itself into your registry. So say you decide to finally buy "Kaspersky" or some other security suite. Because avg wrote itself into your registry it is now impossible for you to switch to any other anti-virus. Personally avg is a pain. It's slow to the point its meaning less to scan, its free (Ie you get what you pay for), and there is the registry issue. The only way to completely uninstall it is to wipe your drives and start over. Wouldn't you call that malicious?  See also: Link Dweller
