    A web search reveals it is part of Windows Media Center so uninstall Windows Media Center if you don't use it.

    Personally I liked the media center but alas it has been removed from 8 on.

    No. Media Player is the entry under Media Center, just uncheck Media Center.

    I don't know how AVG makes their calculations, maybe it is CPU, maybe it is internet traffic, but I have no idea. Personally I liked it when Media Center went out & downloaded my TV channel listings, which I suspect is what that app is but if you don't use media center just unselect it & check the new results.
