Synaptic files false positives

Have noted all posts concerning false positives with Synaptic drivers. Am helping a friend who had the same thing happen to him.

His problem is though all files were deleted from Quarantine.

Here are the ones he found, the Synaptic files can likely be reinstalled with his driver disk, though he isn't pleased of course. But am wondering now about the others found.

 

C:\ProgramData\NTUSER.dat (Trojan.Trace) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Users\Daniel\AppData\Roaming\GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DA T (Trojan.Trace) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

 

Would these likely also have been false positives?

C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\UNAV\WinWDF\x86\SynZMetr.exe (Trojan.Dorkbot.ED) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\syn pd.inf_amd64_neutral_a38b1d6dbd0e8560\synzmetr.exe (Trojan.Dorkbot.ED) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\syn pd.inf_amd64_neutral_c69fb04248ebe31e\synzmetr.exe (Trojan.Dorkbot.ED) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

He attempted to restore all files but the bottom two files that I have bolded could not be restored

 

Here is his new log from scan done after the restore of the 5 quarantined files that would allow a restore;
