Avant browser causes agcp.exe to hang.

Avant browser causes agcp.exe to hang.

Every time a user browses to a Silverlight4 application, a new instance of AGCP.EXE is started but never terminated, even after the browser window is closed. This may build up hundreds of hung instances of AGCP.EXE within a 24 hour period. By default, AGCP.EXE should terminate 10 seconds after the user navigates away from the Silverlight application, however when this problem occurs the same AGCP.EXE process instances are staying indefinitely. The only way to terminate them is to manually end them using Task Manager or to reboot the machine. When the problem occurs you will see AGCP.EXE instances filling up your Task Manager process list:

If you find the problem is due to a non-Microsoft monitoring tool, contact the vendor of that monitoring tool for a fix or workaround so that it does not block AGCP.exe from terminating.

See the following MS website for full explaination.

Is there a way to correct this?

Which version of Avant browser do you use?
And which rendering engine are you using under Tools>Default rendering engine?
I notice the agcp.exe appears for several seconds and then disappear automatically when I open a Silverlight application.
The version number of the silverlight I installed is 5.0.61118.0

No it does not come back after the registery fixer it corrects the problem i have one only and that is registery c/program files and add and remove also if you click start then all programs you see it there and it is suppose to be just like and i stopped silverlight auto update hope this helps . So registery fixer will show you the problems then you check mark what want fix it will not do it it's self giveing you the option to close :)
