I don't think you have any cause for worry. It seems to me that this is AVG Control Center (US spelling) instructing AVG Downloading Update to check for updates. See your Program Files/Grisoft also see this webpage click here

avgcc32.exe is the AVG control centre. It is probably looking for updates.

Is the update console for AVG.

No need to worry!
