This file is part of the Resident Shield for AVG. They split out some scanning tasks and created this new process to use less memory, etc. They have multiple threads of the same EXE for different scanning tasks.

This would be the reason for this file asking for so many "server permission requests" because it is continually scanning.

DO NOT delete it as it is a required component of the program. Just exclude it from the Windows Firewall if that is what is popping up all the time.

Thank you for answering this question.
I spent a lot of time trying to find an answer for this issue, but was unable to find anything that fully stated what this file was for.
Thanks again.
