When using Avast I get 2 large files, both having 76 character names,
adding to over a gigabyte residing in the System Volume Information
folder, they remain there till it's cleaned out. Avast is on-demand, so
when not in use there is only 250KB or so in that folder, till Avast is
once again started.

Is it creating and using those large files as a container to put
compressed files in for scanning?
