I have two same files URL.db36828 in USER & Program Data sub folders.

If you delete them they will be recreated.  Used by avast to monitor urls used to download files.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 1909 Avast Premier Security version 20.10.2442 (build 20.10.5824.618) UI version 1.0.591.

What avast program are you using (Avast Free Antivirus / Pro Antivirus / Internet Security/ Premier) and what version ?

What is the full location ?
I can only find URL.db in C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast and that is only 21MB.
