there is an avp.exe that is a malicious program, yes. However, there is a legitimate avp.exe that is part of Kaspersky, which is most likely the one you have. If you want to check, have a look at where the file is located (search for the file). If it is in the system32 folder then it could be the virus, and then upload it to Jotti or VirusTotal to check it out. If it is a Kaspersky folder in Program Files, then it is perfectly legit.
i went into windows task manager and realised that the file avp.exe was occasionally taking up a lot of memory, so i ran a search on it and found out that it is infact a malicious program??
No, do not ignore internet security. It is crucial, regardless of what you download or how many emails you receive. Make sure you have at one (and only one) Firewall and one (and only one) AntiVirus installed and running. I believe the Kaspersky security suite has both of these, so that is fine. Make sure it is updated regularly.
it is part of the Kaspersky Security so should I just uninstall the whole program and just ignore internet security??
the only time i ever download anything is from official sites and from itunes, i don't use Limewire or anything and i receive about 4 emails a month. so do i even need internet security or will my computer still be at risk.
