lexpore exe has the component avgrsstx in its memory loaded by a regitry based (Applinit.Dlls) hook which could be used by Keylogger to steal private info.Verify augrsstx .dll is a valid Libary before proceeding with the request
I then get a few more pop ups involving avg like Appinit.Dll I have a option too allow or Block,im not sure if this is ok too Allow? if i dont i cant open a internet page,any ideas any1 Please. Thanks

Googled.click here= Just wondering if it is a false positive.It looks like part of AVG resident shield.Maybe try the AVG Forum and see if it is on there.

it is a bit confusing hard to tell if Malware or just part of AVG.I would hang on and see if anyone else can help.Mind you I had to turn my resident shield off as it was using a lot of the CPU.

Maybe if you downloaded Avg after you downloaded Comodo you could try removing AVG then reinstalling it.That may help.Or maybe a system restore to a time before you had the problems.I use Kerio Firewall and don't get pop ups wanting you to allow or deny programs.

Reg run is a different program ,Do you have that and AVG.To stop reg run try msconfig or add remove not sure if it also an anti-virus program.In Avg try Components.Up-date Manager.Make sure update manager component is active. and start automatic updates is ticked.Then press save changes.Sorry I don't know anything about Reg Run is it not in all programs.
