Apparently it's normal

you should see two avp.exe proccesses, one is the service and the other is for the gui. I don't think that it will do any harm.

From what I have been able to gather

by Jacky Howe In reply to GUI of kaspersky

One instance will be running under the User name which will be the GUI interface. The GUI is where you setup the environment.
The other instance will be running as a Service. There could be more instances of AVP.exe running during a scan.

As a user of Kasperspy you should be able to contact their help desk if you are having problems.
