Hello Matt,

I understand the inconvenience.
May I know from which AVG program you received the notification?

Thank you for the information.
Open AVG Internet Security 2017 version dashboard and click on "hacker attack" component.
You will find "Ransomware" feature in it, click on it and check on "Blacklisted" apps.
Check whether you have any files listed in it, if yes, do provide the name of it.
If no files are listed in it, (disable AVG Internet Security temporarily) and check whether you are able to save image from internet.
