Startup Items Missing

Last Modified: 2020-04-01
Undetected application removes startup items that are unsigned on my Windows 10, periodically. My guess, about once a week.

I put them back, then after a while they disappear. Those items are internal software that should have nothing to do with any machine cleanup.

I suspect Defender Cleanup, but cannot be sure about that. Maybe some setting?
