    Have you tried right click -> Open File Location? Where does it lead to?

    The only option I have is to enable or disable. The other options are grey.

    By the way, why are you taking someone elses picture and putting YOUR name on it?

    You could download this Autoruns for Windows and see if you can find Program and therefore find what it's path is. Once we know what it is it will be easier to remove. Leaving it disabled as you have is a good test though - at least you know whatever it is you don't need it

    It's most likely residual from an uninstalled program.
    Easiest way to get rid of it would be CCleaner/Tools/Startup.

    I added red arrows.

    I will remove it since you are upset.

    I have a "Program" on my startup too, it turned out it is from a generic mouse driver.
