    One possibility is that it is the path to malware removed by Windows Defender or your antivirus program. Press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "taskmgr" into the "Open" box and click "OK". When task manager opens, click on the "Startup" tab and see if it is in there. If so, disable it.

    The garbled, nonsensical .exe name almost certainly points to adware related. Run Malwarebytes free or SuperAntispyware free scans and remove. Google to find download sites, if not already installed.

    I disabled it but the problem persists. I also tried Malwarebytes, it indeed cleaned my pc but the cmd never stops popping and sends that message box

    Before using Malwarebytes the cmd pops up and opens Chrome auto, after the clean up it only sends that message box over and over

    See if that startup app is sitting in your registry. Look in those locations in your registry. Delete anything that you find in the following folders that have that garbled name in it.

    Registry
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1511862805-553653610-1676808964-1001\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1511862805-553653610-1676808964-1001\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

    Do a search in the Registry for: ethwtitd
    See if it finds anything.
