I ran an Avast boot scan and it reported in it's log the following:

File C:\Users\clive\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\#!001\MicrosoftEdge\Cache\YBBYAX3D\ccsetup543 (1)[1].exe|>$INSTDIR\CCleaner.exe Error 42145 {Installer archive is corrupted.}

Do I need to do anything about this and if I do what??

It's not any malware, so you don't have to be concerned about that. It's most likely a borked download, so it can be ignored. In fact, if you have CCleaner installed on your PC, perhaps run that to clear out the flotsam & jetsam.

My impressions with CCleaners are annoying apps that come along with random tools I download.

To be honest, I find CCleaner to be a useful tool for cleaning out junk files (as the name implies).

That location is edge temp internet files ( cache)
Many AV give an error on scanning the Temp Internet files
just empty the cache & forget about it

What is happening is Avast is trying to unzip ( extract contents) of the file inside temp internet files to examine the contents. Edge will not allow ( or should not allow) any file to be extracted while inside Temp Internet files while being accessed by any program including an AV. It should only allow the owner ( you) to unzip from Cache ( very unwise to do so )
