avp.exe blocked URL

Problem: You will start noticing a lot of detections pointing to avp.exe being blocked



Cause: The reason you're seeing the process as avp.exe instead of your internet browser's process is because Kaspersky has a feature where it hooks into your browsers and intercepts all web traffic to check for infections and malicious links so the operating system interprets the process accessing the site to be avp.exe

Resolution: To prevent this from happening, you need to disable one of the Web filters from either Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Malwarebytes'. They can be disabled from the KAM or KAV profiles, for KAV it is the "Web Anti-Virus" module and for KAM it is "Start malicious website blocking when protection module starts"
