A quick Google-search returns numerous results that are related to a virus infection. Have you ran an updated virus scan lately? Also try at least one additional online scan for another opinion as one scanner will never find everything.

I think you asked if it could cause AVG antivirus to turn off.

Yes, there are certain viruses that will disable your antivirus application. If you think about it, this would be the ultimate objective of any virus. Disable the thing that may detect and remove you!

If this and your other error is happening, I strongly believe you have a virus. Try running Malwarebytes. But I would also consider going to the Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs forum. Be sure to read the first sticky entitled Please read here first BEFORE posting for help in this forum first though.
