What is avp.exe?
Avp.exe is a process belonging to Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Kaspersky Internet Security. Avp.exe is developed by Kaspersky Lab. It’s a hidden file. It's normal to have legitimate avp.exe instances running at the same time. One should be listed under SYSTEM and the other under User. A third instance might appear when you are performing a scan.
If you don’t have any Kaspersky products installed on your computer, but see avp.exe running in the Task Manager, it might be a trojan. Scan your computer with Auslogics Antivirus to make sure it's not infected.
If you are experiencing high avp.exe CPU usage, try updating your Kaspersky Internet Security to the next version.
