I scan weekly and this week had the same detection on two computers on different networks, one Win 7 and the other Win 10.  From the properties info the files are NOT new, the one on the Win 10 computer was created/modified the same time I installed the  OS in June 2016 .   I did some searching on the net and the more intelligent sites corroborated my guess that these are non-malicious files put in the system during installation of the OS. 

Can a moderator please confirm that this is a false positive?
