Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I'm new to the forum and relatively outdated / superficial in my PC knowledge. Suffice to say I use my home laptop rarely these days. However, every time I switch it on I have the following issue that I was hoping someone may be able to help with.
About 3 years ago I downloaded some windows movie software (forget which) onto the laptop (windows 8) to try and splice together some our our holiday footage. Suffice to say I didn't get on well with the software and removed it, although in such a way that to this day my PC on startup tries to find browsersafeguard.exe. but can't. A black window comes up trying to find it followed by an error window stating that it can't be found.
I have read about browsersafeguard a lot on forums, although none of the help guides I have come across relate to this particular problem. Most of them relate to installing antivrus and malware cleaners and removing the program itself, which I believe to be long gone. (note, I have tried this many times in the hope it may work) As I understand it, the problem seems to be more that the PC is looking for the program and can't find it - what I'd like to know is how to stop it trying to look for/start it.
I hope that makes some sense. It doesn't impact on then operation of the PC but is darn annoying everytime it starts up. Thanks in advance for any help.
