Hi welcome to the forum.

Your post in the virus and worms forum seems to indicate you had avg installed before.  There are still remnants. It looks like the update service.

The fact that it appears to be working fine is no guarantee that it won't bit them in the a** one day. If and when that happens it could leave you less protected rather than better protected and at worst lock up your system.

If you have been trying to uninstall avast but can't it may be that it didn't install correctly possibly because of the presence of AVG.
Why can't you uninstall avast what errors or symptoms are displayed ?

Two antivirus residents, sooner or later... problems.
Like David said, uninstall AVG first

1. Uninstall AVG from Control Panel first.
2. Boot.
3. Uninstall avast from Control Panel.
4. Boot.
5. Use Avast Uninstall for complete uninstallation.
6. Boot.
7. Install only one of them.
8. Boot.
9. Check and post the results.
