    Startup Item

    Hi!

    In my Windows 10, there's a legit program that starts up every time I boot up my Lap. The App is not a malicious one, probably a common one, and I have disabled the "Startup with windows" option in it. Plus I tried to deleted the startup entry from Starup folder, Registry. used Startup managers to disable the entry. But No, this startup entry cannot be removed. I dunno where it is located (the entry value. The program file I know), it's invisible, but it starts at boot time.

    Any ideas, please?

    Did you check services?

    No, but it stopped itself. I don't think it has any service attached to it. Normally that app won't behave like that. Hmm. Anyways, thank you, Tim.

    I had a similar problem, it turned out that the program had set itself up as a scheduled task in various ways. Launch the "Task Scheduler" and have a look-around.
