What location (path) is it running from?

Kaspersky's avp.exe will run as a service and a startup from this path:
C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0\avp.exe

You can download and use Process Explorer by Sysinternals to investigate all processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. This tool will show the process CPU useage, a description and its path.
