avgemc.exe - scans e-mails for viruses
avgfwsrv.exe - AVG Firewall
avgupsvc.exe - deals with real-time updates
avgamsvr.exe - AVG Anti-Virus System Alarm Manager (alerts when virus detected)

The only way to "control" these programs, is to disable AVG, which isn't advisable.
Perhaps, try a different AV, and see if it's lighter on system resources.
