Strange filenames in SysWOW64 folder

Running Windows 8.1 x64 with latest MS patches installed and current versions of all applications. Using av/as, 3rd party fw, secondary and tertiary (on-demand only) av/as, anti-exploit protection, IDS, and a number of other tools. None of which are indicating a problem.


However, I run FRST periodically and noticed some strange filenames in this morning's results in the One Month Created files and folders section. Not sure is there's any cause for concern but really curious to know if anyone has seen this before. Uploaded files to VT and they all appear to be the same file; i.e. all the hashes matched with no indication of infection. I'm wondering - are these unicode characters? Any theories as to where they came from and/or how they got there?


Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light.
