macOS High Sierra

"maftask"+"spchlpr"+"hlpradc" malware warnings upon Catalina install

Popups for the above three files appear during Catalina install. I can see from Google that this is malware but a search for Mac Auto Fixer app doesn't show such an application (and searching for the file names show nothing). Caveat, this is after a Time Machine reset back to prior install.

Is Catalina scanning for pre existing malware that High Sierra didn't detect or is this some other issue?

How should we proceed?
