AVG Email Scanner activating at strange times with strange IP addresses

    I use hotmail only, I have Outlook installed on this computer but it's
    never been run, and its not in my task manager that I can see. I've
    triple virus scanned this system w/ different programs, also I run
    Ad-Aware and Spybot and a few other forms of protection.

    ....With that said, anyone have any thoughts on why my firewall (sygate)
    is warning me that AVG Email Scanner is trying to contact some strange
    IP address in Europe? Am I correct to assume that my system is somehow
    sending an email to Europe (behind my back)?

    How can I further investigate whats triggering this behaviour?

    Is AVG a European product? OR do they employ European servers?
