    Hello Tony,

    If you right click on it, does it allow you to click on Open file location or Properties?

    If so, then either may help ID what this is for.

    If not, then you might check all locations in the registry from OPTION THREE to see if you may find it listed in one of these registry locations.

    If found in the registry, then disable this startup program in Task Manager and restart the computer first to see if you have any adverse effects with it disabled. If not, then create a restore point to be safe, then go back to the registry and delete this startup program's entry.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Possible, or some program that didn't install or uninstall properly.

    You might go ahead and do a full scan of your system at boot with Windows Defender Offline to help make sure you are clean.

    It's not a boot scanner, but you could give Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free a try from within Windows 8 to help make sure you're clean.
