Have you tried scanning them at VirusTotal?

It seems quite odd to be there. I checked my computer and those are not located there. The only thing I can think of is that it's a CLSID of a registered program.

A little Google searching is helpful here. The two files ending in extension .cpx are valid Microsoft files. See the list here. _Wkernel.fre has been scanned multiple times at places like Virustotal, and has always come back clean, although I can't determine what it is. I don't think the other two items are malicious, although I can't tell exactly what they are. If you're really concerned that you're infected, then you need to read this and start a new topic in the malware forum - this is not the forum for asking about suspicious files.
