Windows 10: Unwanted programs starting (no Task Manager)

    Unwanted programs starting (no Task Manager)


    Whenever I start Windows 10, early on in the boot cycle I get a Firefox Window. As the system continues to initialize the Firefox window slowly come to life, though sometimes not fully.

    I've checked all the obvious places, Task Manager, c;\users\user_name\AppData\Roaming

    I must have put this in for some reason but can't think of why / how.

    I want to get rid of it.
    How to do so?

    Hi.
    There are a couple of ways to look for these things. Try opening Task Manager and look in the Startup Tab. If you don't find what you're looking for, sometimes it's a task that you can find easily in Ccleaner free. Also, it sounds like Forefox may need to be reset.
