Why is smartscreen.exe trying to create `Bob the Builder – Bob Builds a Park.exe` on my computer?

I just finished using the Sysinternals tool called procmon.exe to determine which files were being used during a program’s installation. I used the procmon filters to show me only file events in a certain folder.

When the installer completed I started looking through the events and found that smartscreen.exe was trying to create files that I’ve never had on my computer let alone have never existed within the folder I’m monitoring.

Here are some sample events:
