Hi DJ G,

Try a boot time scan with avast! Right click the scanner screen, select 'schedule a boot time scan' and reboot when requested. (Or open the tab at the top left of the scanner screen and select the boot time option from there.)

Select the option to 'Move to Chest' if malware is found.

Are you actually using the avast for Server edition ?

The problem is the detection is within an archive file upgrade.exe and avast couldn't really extract it from there without possibly corrupting it.
As you can see it is in a Temp folder you could a) clear the files in Temp or b)  just the upgrade.exe.

So if you know what the Upgrade relates to, the Kw1 folder, what created it, etc. otherwise I would say you should clear all temp files.

These would help to automate that maintenance task, CCleaner - Temp File Cleaner, etc. or ClearProg - Temp File Cleaner
