    Welcome
    Its your AVG, unitall it. Replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials
    Before doing anything make a system restore points, so that you can go back, if necessary.

    Well as rich stated, remove all the Anti-Virus and use Windows Defender that comes with Windows 8. (Create System Restore point just in case if you want to go back with your free AV's)

    Here is information upon rexamination. This is the driver and the cause
    avgntflt.sys Windows process - What is it?
    I thought the driver was an AVG
    You need defender and an anti virus. I suggest MSE, it has defener inculuded
