AVG is picking up avgcc.exe as a trogan. I my case its linked to regsv.exe (known beastie), also avg has only flagged it up as a trojan after i got the Vundu virus
Avg control center...perfectly safe
i've uninstalled avg but te file is still there. removing it by regedit doesnt cut it.
This process runs on the taskbar for the antivirus monitoring as well as the option to open the control center to change settings and run a scan
Its for AVG Anti-Virus. It's safe.

Best practices for resolving avgcc issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with avgcc. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the avgcc.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
