3 Malwares in my recovery parition

So I just did a restore to original factory condition. Did some program updating online, then offline I ran antivirus scan. Comodo came back with three malwares all located on my restore partition.

1)Suspicious@#306a9muc6vugc - FactoryUpdate*\SOURCE\Verona 2.1\pi159bf13.exe
2).heur.Suspicious@1 - FactoryUpdate*\SOURCE\Chaplin 1.0\pi3585f03.exe
3)Suspicious@1x9z5g1vjuuf - FactoryUpdate*\SOURCE\Zidane 2.0\pi1651F03.exe

So, being a newbie (please don’t call me a noob, my doctor advised me to avoid an ■■■■■■■ or homoerotic terminology. Being subjected to such may turn me into a complete ■■■■■■. Thank you for your empathy), will my future factory restores be affected by these now quarantined exes?

Also, is it at all possible these malwares were put on my restore partition at an early time with the intent of avoiding deletion from a factory restore?

Thank you for any input.


well first of all saying Suspicious items “MALWARE” is totally wrong . in most cases they are just false positives , and i don’t think by quarantine them effect your backup .
and don’t worry no one here gonna say you noob :wink:

WELCOME to forums :slight_smile:

These are most likely false positives.
