odd "Program" Service in Task Manager set to autostart at Startup in Windows 10

hi - while trying to speedup my Windows 10 startup, I thought I'd disable any non-critical services from auto-start. While doing that I noticed that one is simply called "Program" with no other information … which has me a bit suspicious.
The PC is a clean rebuild from about 2 weeks ago (I did it at home).

Does anyone know if this is normal or how to investigate what it is / does and whether it's legit?

cheers.

hi Sumit,

thank you for the quick response :)

There were 3 executables in that zip file - autoruns.exe, autoruns64.exe and autorunsc.exe.

I ran autoruns64.exe and have attached a screenshot of the Logon Tab  :)

Appreciate your help.

Thank you for the screenshot. It appears like the Program is related to Teams. You may try deleting the entry in Autoruns and check.

I do also have teams installed for meetings and also see Program in my Task Manager.

Thanks Sumit.

 On another pc (Windows 10) I have Teams set to autostart but no sign of the "Program" … any idea why that might be?

Might be a version difference- A bug on one release was supposedly fixed in a future one.
