    Weird Startup Enty On Windows 10 Pro x64 Bit 1809

    Hi There

    Weird Startup Entry, Not associated to any folder it seems, wgc

    Planning maybe to purchase newer SSD or Storage drive for birthday 2 Thursdays away, then possibly doing whole system clean install at that point, unless i'd be wasting money doing that as my Current Western Digital non 3D nand SSD shows 88 percent life remaining in it's dashboard software, and Don't see to have issues with my Toshiba 1tb OEM storage drive

    Hi, what do you see if you rt click it, Properties?

    Do you see a path to a file, or is it invalid?

    Autoruns (free from MS) can be very useful here.

    Path Invalid, tried that part already, WIll look at Autoruns in a second here, Might not be malicious at all, could be connected to game center that i had installed in the way past lol, guess didn't uninstall too properly lol if that is what it is

    Autoruns lets you Find wgc, then you will probably see it's highlighted as not existing, and Autoruns lets you delete it.

    Generally a good idea to use Revo Uninstaller or Geek Uninstaller which do a scan after normal uninstall. (free version useful)

    Autoruns offers an easy way... find it, should be highlighted in yellow, rt click, delete
