If you don’t have any Kaspersky products installed on your computer, but see avp.exe running in the Task Manager, it might be a trojan. Scan your computer with Auslogics Antivirus to make sure it's not infected.
If you are experiencing high avp.exe CPU usage, try updating your Kaspersky Internet Security to the next version.
