I recently replaced Avast with Avira free a/v. Regular monitoring and frequent quick scans haven't turned up much. Today I ran the first full scan and Avira detected 6 files associated with what they call a virus named BAT/KillProc.E batch I looked into the source of the files and they are in a users downloads folder. Two files with the exact same name: ENGAGE Theme by X-Generator.7z I have no idea where these files came from and in need of some expert clarification. So far, all I have done is a system back up to a removable hard drive and came straight here. I did not move the files to quarantine per Avira's suggestion. Thank you for your consideration and time. TSG is a great resource and I, for one, greatly appreciate it!

I wouldn't worry about that at all. Just delete the files found.
If it was in downloads folder, they you or a user on that computer did download it and it is a theme changer. However I wouldn't personally use it or any other theme downloaded from the internet. Any theme change not approved by Microsoft carries the risk of breaking the computer when windows updates.
While it is inside the zip file they are totally harmless and cannot run, so just delete the zip files

BAT/KillProc.E is frequently a false detection and had been often detected in graphics driver updates and other updates that try to replace running files on a computer without rebooting.
It is one of these dual use "programs" where although designed for good & safe use is frequently abused by malware developers to attempt to replace running windows files
