Corel Corporation - 0.131% Detection Rate *

Did you just run into a download or a file on your computer that is digitally signed by Corel Corporation? If so, please read on.

You will typically notice Corel Corporation when double-clicking to run the file. The publisher name is displayed as the "Verified publisher" in the UAC dialog as the screenshot shows:

As you can see in the screenshot above, Windows states that "This digital signature is OK". This implies that the file has been published by Corel Corporation and that the file has not been tampered with.

Corel Corporation Files

These are the Corel Corporation files I've collected, thanks to the FreeFixer users.

The FreeFixer tool treats files from Corel Corporation as safe, which means that the Corel Corporation files will appear with a green background and that there is no removal checkbox for the file. However, as you can see in the scan results below, a few of the anti-virus scanners detects the Corel Corporation file(s). I'm pretty sure those detections are incorrect and that the files are safe. It is unlikely that Corel Corporation would ship a malware file.

Scanner and Detection Names

Here's the detection names for the Corel Corporation files. I have grouped the detection names by each scanner engine. Thanks to VirusTotal for the scan results.

As mentioned above, I think these detections are false positives since it is very unlikely that Corel Corporation would ship a malware file.
