    Task Manager - Startup tab


    I found these 3 entries and am wondering why when I right click, the "Open file location" and "Properties" are greyed out.

    Hoping someone can help me find out what these are

    win10 version 2004

    Thanks
    Richard

    Download Sysinternals Autoruns: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...loads/autoruns
    It will help you see what is running or possibly be a 'left-over' from an uninstalled program.

    Start by right clicking on any column header, enable Startup type and Command line to see what kind of entry they are and, where they might be...

    EDIT:
    Better yet, do as @Jacee suggested.

    Actually, I like your suggestion as a first step.

    Unchecking the wrong thing in Autoruns can brick a system.

    You can use both tools to "match"...by name, by execution path, etc.

    Much better being able to see the command line, it was a utility I downloaded and since uninstalled, so I disabled them

    Thanks to all for your time and knowledge
