It was the file names that got me. I expected witp.exe, but not a wiptrec.exe.

I used AVG for years till this sort of thing started to happen with different kinds of programs. My advice is to delete AVG and go with Avast! This is just my opinion.

with Avast! Thi

I actually made the transition a few years ago and I would also recommend Avast. It's much better than AVG and it offers real-time scanning.
