Where does AVG's Resident Shield 'service' run?



  • 1. false statement to infect you with Trojan - BackDoor-AZV.gen: Nick Berg Found Alive
    Nick Berg is dead (may he RIP !) and this is a scam to infect you with the Trojan - "BackDoor-AZV.gen" Dave
  • 2. 2 anti virus on the network
    HI, I thought to implement two differnet annti virus vendors on the network inorder to reduce the chance that a virus will get in to my network. Does any one knows about an example of a virus or worm or trojan that one anti virus cought and the other anti virus didnt ? I want to present it to managment so they'll give me budget to implement this thing.
  • 3. AVG antivirus
    I saw somewhere in Microsoft (Knowledge Base?) a recommendation for AVG antivirus software. Does such recommendation exist or is it a hoax? Nowadays one is not sure of anything. Elmir m.

Where does AVG's Resident Shield 'service' run?

Hi all,

Someone asked me, why, when he 'turned off' his AVG free 'Control Centre', 
virus checking still continued.  I had not looked into this before, but 
assumed that the virus checker was a service that was set to load or not, in 
the CC front end, but then continued automatically.

Sure enough, Resident Shield turns up in the AVG folder as avgrssvc.exe, but 
this file does not show up in the services in Computer Management, or 
Process Explorer. Clicking the exe file direct just gets a 'fail to start' 
message, but it is presumably already running, just not showing up anywhere 
as such.

Where can this service be observed running; and can it be turned on and off 
without the CC front end?
