Windows 7: Unrecognized files

16 Aug 2015   #1

Windows 7
Unrecognized files

I have a comodo firewall installed on my laptop. It apparently does a quick scan for viruses too.

I scanned the pc and it came up with 0 malicious threats and 5 unrecognized files. Are these files(attached pic) virus or something that came with sony or something?

Do you mean that you have Comodo CIS? Or just the Firewall?

I don't know much about using just the Firewall alongside another antivirus but using Comodo CIS (AV + Firewall) unrecognized files simply means files that are not in Comodo's database of files and it's up to you to decide if they are safe.

Edit: The files you listed must be part of Sony Media Go Video Playback Engine and are nothing to worry about. Just add them to trusted files.
