i have kaspersky 6.02.614 running on 4 machines. 1 desktop running vista. 1 laptop running vista. 1 laptop runing XP sp2, 1 desktop runing XP sp2. all are set up the same. mail and web are running. the scan hard drive is done manually.

 

on both of the xp's the "avp.com" is showing up in task manager under processes. showing cpu between 95 -99%. the user name is who ever in login. when avp.com shows up to bring the pc almost to a stop.

hello

avp.com is the command line executable, it does not run if you don't have a scheduled task or a manual scan configured. do you have it configured somewhere, such as a av scanner in a download manager?

First of all why are you not using the latest 7.0.0.125...........particularly with the Vista laptop in mind. You mean AVP.exe right?

do you have configured any application to use kav as a command line scanner :

"C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0\avp.com" scan %f

or something similar?

Yes, because the avp is you AntiVirus...

 

Some XP users experience this problem when you have security centre monitoring your AV (same problem as XP autoupdates and instances of svchost.exe sucking all your cpu and ram)

Goto security centre first, and uncheck the box for windows monitoring your AV.

It's ok, Kaspersky will let you know if it's out-of-date.

then as previously mentioned, check you don't have download clients or email programs over-using kaspersky and hogging CPU time.

next, i'd check you don't have background scanning configured for network drives.

Lastly, make the upgrade to 7

make the upgrade. avp.com is only invoked manually, when you try to do a on demand scan from the commandline.
