Identifying DLL's

Having looked in Component Monitor, I have noticed a few DLL’s that are registering as “unknown” in both the Company and Version columns. Is this a sign of rogue software (DLL’s) or do some companies just not label these parts. If this is common by rogue software, it might be a good idea to highlight these DLL’s with red text so they are easily noticable.

:slight_smile:

Edit: I should note that some of these DLL’s are in the system32 folder so are difficult to identify.

Don’t worry, the Unknown Versions & Company, with no description are signs of either a lazy coder/builder :wink: or an attempt to hide or an compatible build system with Windows. Some security programs do this on purpose, so another process can’t easily identify them or at least with any degree of certainty.
