I tried to run Team for ARM x64 on my Xeon PC and of course it failes. but I didn't somehow when windows 10 Started at the login screen, an error message will say this binary is not for my PC hardware.... !

I already cancel the installation program, why this same error message comes up aLL the time when I start Windows 10 and as the login screen ?

anyway to remove it ?

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns is the best tool to see all possible autoruns that are configured in your system and deactivate them selectively.

other than install the tools, anything else we can do ? registry.... ?

That's nothing you need to install but a single executable.
Since we do not know how this program creates its startup entry, a manual search would be cumbersome.

but is there any single path in registry point to the start up application? then I go to delete that entry, right ?

There are many many ways how a program could go about. We don't know, so we use this tool, ok? It's not like: let's look into the registry at position x, maybe it's there.

So you started autoruns.exe via right click selection "run as administrator" and then inside, on the "everything" tab, you searched for the name of that executable?
