AVG reporting 850-900 locked, unscanned files
About a month ago my AVG scan results included a notification that some 850-900 files were locked and therefore not scanned. I scanned with Malwarebytes and Spybot and used CCleaner to clean up things generally, but the files remained.

Then I uninstalled Intersystem's giant CACHE, an SQL program which I wanted to look at, but did not need. The next AVG scan did not show the locked files and I thought I was home free. A week ago the locked files returned. Sample attached.

I don't know the source - no "usual suspects" - nor what to do about them. That's slim information to go on, but I'd appreciate help in the next step or steps to take. Here's the Sysinfo
