        I noticed today when I checked startup apps an app named “Program”.  It does not have any details in “Properties”.  I searched online and seems it could be leftover from an app that did not cleanup totally.  I don’t know how long it’s been there. I disabled it.  Outside of a suggestion to go into the Registry to delete things! :0  I didn’t see any  good suggestions on what to do.   Any ideas or suggestions on how to find out what it is/get rid of it?  I am running ESET Node & MBAM Premium – no viruses found. thanks.

        Right-click the column headers in the Startup tab of Task Manager and then click to check “Command line” to display the path to its executable.
