Hi everyone,


I have AVG Free 2013, which needed to be updated (i've since done this) and when closing Google Chrome, I got the message that avgui.exe was being downloaded. I did a little research, and most places seem to say it has to do with registry errors, but AVG had never done anything like that. Does anyone have any possible reasons for this? Thanks in advance.

Hi -

The process known as AVG User Interface belongs to software AVG Internet Security by AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o (www.freeavg.com).

It is a Verisign signed file. The file is certified by a trustworthy company.
File avgui.exe is not a Windows core file. The process can be uninstalled in the Control Panel.

NOTE : avgui.exe is able to record inputs.
Therefore the technical security rating is 10% dangerous.
In the event of any problems with avgui.exe, you may want to do the following:
Uninstall the associated program Go - Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove programs (Programs and Features in Vista and Windows7) > Delete > AVG 2013 or AVG 2011

If this is bothering you, then you can replace AVG free with any of these Free Antivirus programs > >
Microsoft Security Essentials (what I currently use)
Avira AntiVir


Thank You -
