    Windows 10 Memory Diagnostic bug!

    I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic once, and since then it places an icon in my taskbar which I can't remove, nothing with left click or right click, I checked in msconfig startup it's not there..!! Is there a way to force its removal? anyone

    Sorry for bumping, but this is an annoying bug. It creates a perpetual task in the Task Scheduler, you can kill it, erase it and nothing, after reboot or logon it comes up again, and apparently nobody has an answer here

    Do you have System Restore enabled?
    If so, restore back to a point before the garbage first ran.

    Another trick, that sometimes works, is to find out where it lives and kill the file. If Win restores it, then you may be able to kill it, and copy over a harmless exe like notepad, and rename it to the the name of the deleted file.

    If it restores the file only at bootup, and not immediately after it is stopped then a batch file placed in your user startup directory with instruction to wait 30 seconds and kill the file process might work.
    Not sure how to do it with Win10 but in XP I would use:
    Sleep 30
    process -k filename.exe

    I think Win10 has removed process -k, so google for a replacement.
    My systems are half Posix, so you might need to replace sleep with its M$ equivalent, I beleive WAIT

    The last alternative is to set a restore point, and search and destroy via the registry. As Admin, of course. Right click on keys to enable permissions if needed.
