idp.alexa.53 false positive?

Hi.  I'm attempting to run an npm build command in my Git Windows Bash shell, to compile and host a React app on port 8082.  This used to work just fine, but this morning, I keep getting alerts from AVG that powershell.exe is behaving suspiciously.  It's flagging it with idp.alexa.53 "command line detection."

Help?  I need this for my work, and not being able to run my build command is seriously impacting me.  I have no idea if this is an actual issue (with the virus/malware being whatever is using powershell) or not.  How do I tell?
