Can you describe the pop ups? Where do they appear, what do they say?

avp.exe is related to Kaspersky anti-virus. Are you using it?

I actually meant to ask if you ever had Kaspersky installed?

When avp.exe is related to a startup, it can be related to Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Alphabet.b. If you are getting a startup error, the message should provide more information like "file not found", "cannot load", etc. Does it say what kind of error is being created?

Have you performed a search of your system to see if that file exists? You can use Windows Search feature > More advanced options to see if the file(s) are still present. To do this, go to Start -> Search and click For Files or Folders....
  • Click All files and folders.
  • Type in the name of the file under "Search by...criteria."
  • Click More advanced options and check these options:
    • "Search system folders"
    • "Search hidden files and folders"
    • "Search subfolders"
  • Then click "Search" to look for the file(s).
