Bad system file?

    Windows XP x64 Professional

    During abnormal operation, the file " avp.exe*32 " runs,
    with up to 99% cpu usage and with Memory Usage
    growing from ~40K up to 150K, oscillating to & fro.
    It slows everything else, finally locking all until it stops,
    sometimes after 5 -10 minutes, sometimes not until
    switch -off at the mains supply.
    Whilst I cannot be certain this is the same file running
    at start-up, sometimes the behaviour is identical. with
    the hard drive light "On" but not booting after Log-on.

    I have "cured" it by a restore to 2 weeks back, before
    this began.

    I suspect the (now) 6 yr-old hard drive (& PC) is returning
    to the great re-cycler at the city dump but ask here in case
    wiser heads think otherwise?

    Hopefully, may you have an Improving New Year,
