Manifest fingerprint file

I have a client who is extremely concerned about security on her machine. She has found a folder in her temp folder that has three files in it:
crl-set
manifest.fingerprint
manifest.json

I suggested that these files are just temp files generated by the fingerprint reader of the laptop but she insists they just started appearing. She does not use the fingerprint reader nor has she ever.

She wants an explanation. She suspects that someone is trying to access her computer remotely without her knowledge.

Any ideas?

These are generic file and likely from chrome.exe. try deleting rhat specific tmp folder and have the process monitor to track its creation to reveal the binary creating it. Likewise you can even send those files to virustotal since they are supposed to be harmless and not malicious exe to virustotal online for check. The user does have valid concern in this case and also good to track the creation and modify time for those files on frequency of changes..need to ascertain if really due to FP software or others.
