avgw.exe pops up with each boot of XP and return from standby. If I leave it alone it will remain for hours interfearing with any program I attempt to run. awicia
if avgw.exe is eatign up your CPU, open AVG, Click 'scheduled tasks', double-click on 'test plan in basic mode' and uncheck the box that says 'periodically start scheduled antivirus test'. This should stop avgw.exe from eating up your CPU gr34t_adida
