Does anyone know much about the following worm:

I've removed it from my system using CCleaner registry cleaner tool, but other posts on this site say that it tends to reappear even when deleted.

for a start it is not a worm or any malware but an integral part of AVG antivirus
it doesn't just miraculously appear on your computer, unless you install AVG

Now you have almost certainly wrecked your computer by using a registry cleaner to remove what is essential to your computer, you had better reinstall windows and be more careful about deleting things that are integral to your security set up

I had a paid subscription to AVG Anti-Virus, but the subscription ran out and I uninstalled AVG. However numerous AVG files remained on my computer, and this seems to have been one of them. I can't see how removing a file belonging to an uninstalled program could 'wreck my computer'. It's working fine at the moment.
Your reply has not answered my question, I'm afraid; but thanks anyway for trying.

I have answered your question
it is NOT a worm or virus or any malware of any description
you have used a very dangerous and incorrect method of removing left over parts of an antivirus, with the consequent risk of future problems

if you still have left over parts of AVG then use the AVG uninstaller utility to get rid of it properly

Using the "Registry" feature and over-using the "Cleaner" feature of CCleaner is a good way to damage Windows and break programs and generate error/warning messages and cause other issues.

Why hasn't Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit been upgraded to SP1?

The Acer Aspire 5741 supports up to 8 GB of RAM, so you should consider increasing it to at least 4 GB.
