Maybe leave it just now as far as I could see with a quick look is that it downloads AVG toolbar on to your computer.
So maybe ignore it just now till you find out more details.

It is an AVG Toolbar that incorporates a "Search Shield" which warns you about Malicious Sites. If you already have WOT, Browser Defender, or similar for protection then you don't need this. However it is just an "add-on" and can be quite easily "disabled" at any time.
