QuestionStrange entry in startup list Pin

Last week I did a new clean install on my Windows 10 machine. When the install was done, I checked the startup list to see which apps in the list can be disabled. I found one app called simply "Program". It had no publisher, no icon, nothing. Confused | :confused: I disabled it and scanned the registry to see if it was listed anywhere. I found no entries. A Google search produced very little, other than the fact that it is probably malware. I could not get rid of it. A Defender scan came up clean.

However, this morning it was gone. It just disappeared. Does anyone have any idea of its origins and purpose? How did it get in the computer? Thanks!
Get me coffee and no one gets hurt!
