    "Open file location" is greyed out. The file possibly does not exist.
    Open Registry Editor and go to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    See whether "Program" is there. If not, see whether it is in the following folders:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
    C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

    Hello @makhan10,

    You possibly had some software that was installed and triggered to run on Startup. You may well have uninstalled this software, but during uninstallation the file became corrupted.

    Does it show in Programs & Features?

    I would Disable it and then run Disk Cleanup . . .

    I hope this helps.

    Get and use Autoruns (free from MS) - it immediately identifies invalid entries for you and gives you ready access to the appropriate location.

    Use CCleaner to delete it.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Export the above key. Then delete "Wondershare Helper", which is shown in your screenshot.

    The "Image Path" shows "File not found".
