What is standalonephase1.dat?

I've used cheat engine for a very long time, even tried my best at using it for some games, so I was a bit surprised when Comodo detected standalonephase1.dat as malware.

I've run the file through the VirusTotal site with only 6 detection's out of 20/30 that are there, as far as I know, its a false positive. I just want to know what is this file used for, because cheat engine functions without it.

Thank you!

Thank you for the read, afraidless. It was just odd, after years of using CE and Comodo together, it started to say the file is a virus.

No problem, hope it cleared it up for you. I'm sure it's just a false positive, just like my HIV test.
