Hello, I'm running XP sp3 with Kaspersky PURE for about 2 months. Computer runs slower and slower. Shutdown is also slow and sometimes I have to force a shutdown. AVP.EXE is the file that seems to be slowing the computer and hanging shutdown.
Does this sound right to you and what are my options?

It depends on the location of the file. If legit, it should be in this type of location:

C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\< your Kaspersky product here>\avp.exe

It should not be in C:\Windows\system32

Malware sometimes uses legit file names in non-standard locations in the hope of not being noticed.
