No need for any further investigation. I installed the 32-bit
form the 7z file, which does not require elevated privileges, for
peace of mind.

Yes, I have installed both. Only the 32-bit gives positives.
Indeed very strange. Are you fine with with 64-bit
versions then, or do you want to further investigate the
32-bit versions? In the case of the "dbus-test-tool.exe", to my
knowledge both versions are build from the same official
sources [1,2]. Maybe you can experiment building  on
Windows in a way that "Comodo" does not recognize the 32-bit
version as virus and we can improve our recipe
