Harmful files such as "avp.exe" conceal themselves as innocuous program files. The benign "avp.exe" file belongs to the Kaspersky Internet Security Suite, which guards your system against malicious adware and viruses. However, if you do not have Kaspersky installed on your system, the "avp.exe" is definitely an infection. This infection can install other spyware and create a backdoor for hackers. Even if the file is a component of Kaspersky, it can sometimes malfunction, causing system lagging. Fortunately, you can use simple manual procedures to get rid of "avp.exe" and return your computer to its normal operation.
