Question
i downloaded AVG onto my usb.when i opened the program it ask "do you want to make changes to this pc". Will the changes do the same job,deleting viruses?

Answer
Hello Garren,

Most likely, the AVG version you downloaded onto the USB drive is an executable file meant to be  installed on the system before being run. So as a security measure, Microsoft in-built Action Centre did request for a go-ahead before taking measures.

And yes, if the file is found to be a genuine executable installable file, it definitely would do its chore as expected.
