This is a long shot, you might check the anti-virus and/or anti-malware quarantine pots 'cause for some reason, such sometimes, not often, will "scan and catch" contents and move 'em into quarantine. Not likely here, but, it can't hurt to check the pots.

Save the batch file that is attached to this post to your desktop.
(The batch file just contains the pause command.)

If the file shows on your desktop...
...then AVAST left it alone during the download scan.

Double click on the batch file...
...let us know what happens.

If the batch still on your desktop...
...then AVAST left it alone during the open file process.

Right click on the batch file...
...select Edit from the context menu
...let us know what happens.
