Part of AVG's update service. Linda Hall
Like they say,it is part of AVG's anti-virus software. What makes it dangerous is that it is impossibleto remove even using AVG's removal tool and in order to ensure the proper functioning of other software like McAfee all AVG software needs to be off your computer. In other words,because AVG does not want you to use other people's anti-virus software it makes sure that its software stays on your computer forever. Never ever use anything by AVG. It is more trouble than it's worth. Anthony Barnes
