I went through all the files you have listed and found them all in my Vista setup. In fact I found more 😃 in the directory C:WindowsSystem32drivers
Please see in the picture below (in the red rectangles). There is a lot of WSA remnant sys files. They are not all displayed. I made just an example. They are all over across the directory. Hovering over them gives WSA build number, so I noticed they indeed belong to the old WSA builds.
I should add that I never was forced to use the randomize installation.
The clean uninstall of WSA + cleaning temps, registry etc. using CCleaner doesn't remove them. So can you provide a tool which would be capable to remove them? Something like Norton has its removal tool. If not I would have to go the file by file to check if it is really WSA remnant or not. Unfortunately as you can see the files are named very oddly so it is hard to filter/separate them.
Should I be concerned or ... ?
Thanks & regards,
