Hello! 

 

I am trying to speed up my laptop (it takes awhile for it to boot). I downloaded Autoruns and found some Image Path: File not found ... registry keys (if that what theyre called). A few of them say:

###MegaShellExtPending

###MegaShellExtSynced

###MegaShellExtSyncing

 

There are a few like that. Could you please help me understand this?

 

Thank you for your time!

It means that something was uninstalled and did not clean up, leaving orphaned registry entries (and likely files) behind.

 

Nothing to worry about.
