Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your screenshot didn't make it to BC !

 

Can you have another go at it, or, if you have it on somewhere like Dropbox, Imgur or any other hosting site, just post the URL / Link. You may also want to have a look at Stolen's notes on how to post an image, here :-

Your image made it this time and now that I have seem it I believe it, but I have no idea what is causing it. It has a digit '1' after it while everything else in the list references a location on your C:\ drive.

 

It may be just a glitch. Unless you are having other problems with your computer I would just ignore it. Of course, somebody else may disagree with me.

Since it's unchecked whatever it is it won't run. The file location and name of the file is cut off by the screen capture. Whatever it is, it looks like a what a malware/virus toolbar entry would look like. Can't say for sure. There is a way to rip it from the registry, but it will take some steps to do it. It's safe to ignore it as Chris said, cause it's disabled anyways.

 

Oh and since you have Google Drive you shoudln't disable Google Updater. Sometimes they push fixes and security patches that way and you don't want to miss out on that.
