    Windows 10 start up Apps list shows a strange App


    Hello,


    Today I have observed the following behavior on my Dell Inspiron Laptop, when I boot my laptop and login, I get to the list of startup apps and see a strange app in the list. This app disappears from the list if I go to Apps and Features and come back to the startup apps list. Below is the screenshot of the startup apps list. Is my laptop infected with any malware?




    I depend on Windows Defender to protect my system from any virus or malware. I see Windows Defender is up to date. I have run a quick scan which did not report any virus. I plan to run a full scan tonight. Full scan on my laptop takes about 15 hours to complete.




    Below is the basic information about the system.




    Thanks & Regards,

    Raj

    :)
