Hi, i know that avgamsvr.exe is the AVG7 Alert Manager Server but i want to know what exactly it does and if is really essential for the AVG 7 to work properly.

Why i am asking this?Simply because i want to save as much resources i can but of course without have to completely turn off the AVG7 background scanning & services.I already set to manual the AVG7 Update Service (avgupsvc.exe) because i only update all my programs my manually i dont like auto-update plus i save some more resources with this service set to manual.

So to my question what exactly the AVG7 Alert Manager Server does?

Thanks for any replies.

From everything I've read, this process is necessary for AVG to work properly and disabling it will cause AVG to malfunction.

There does not appear to be official information concerning the specifics of what it does; however, a couple posters in some discussion forums have said that it alerts the user to the presence of a virus and that it is responsible for updating the program.
