I ran across a bunch of files on my C:Windows\SysWOW64 folder, see attached picture. What are these files, I have done a search in the bleepingcomputer data base and none of the show up. All of the files seem to have been placed on my PC on 12/29/11 except for twnlib4.dll.

Other files that seem to be legit were put on at the same time, pvxplore8.ocx (Infragistics Data Explorer Control - ActiveX Control) and msflxgrd.ocx (Microsoft FlexGrid Controls - ActiveX Control).

The latest updated versions of Malwarebytes, NOD32 and Spybot do not pick these up. My system is running fine and I do not see anything virus related so I do not think these have anything to do with a virus. I would just like to know what they are for.
