AVengine.exe uses 99% of CPU

I found something on web that says AVengine.exe is spyware.

http://www.google.ca/pagead/adclick?adurl=http://www.paretologic.com%3Fid%3Drapdec%26p%3D14&sa=l&ai=A9K1uikeSBdf1GQs5oNYy8C5C1C6iGMOi3LbAJW6-IKgBBApT4SZAQb4ABEQAMDR7eW6_DAAAAAQAAA

I thought AVengine.exe was part of Panda AV.
From time to time, AVengine.exe starts and slows down my computer.

I would be grateful for guidance.

and if its turned out from Panda... then it can be possible that u are running some other background processes, that are confliciting with Panda AV, so do this.....

goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup
and untick all appliactions except Panda entries and restart
check if same slowness problem or not ??
if NO then re-enable each application at a time and trace out the culprit one !!

U may also run some tools in safemode, to verify if ur system is really clean !!

AdAware ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/adaware.html
SpyBot  ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/spybot.html
Stinger ==> http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

Post back and Good Luck :)

Did that, yes, it says from Panda.
So the running without notification, using 99% of CPU is normal?
I have CPU load management enabled, but still slows down operation.
Price I have to pay to live in the Internet world?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Thank you, I posted 3:49PM just as you were writing your additional comments.
I will try all your recommendations, but later, I have to do something else right now, will post back.

BTW, Am I understanding this right:
Boot to safemode, run adware, spybot, etc. and these programs can do a better job cleaning because in regular mode something might have loaded already that they can't unload, so can't fix?
