Windows8 opening file on startup.

Post by Divinejames » Mon Feb 04, 2019 12:53 pm

Recently, whenever i boot up my computer, i am told to select a program with which to open a file. When i select wordpad, a text file opens with the following contents: Showbox Tutuapp Vidmate

C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft Game Launcher\Uplay.exe MYNAME\UninstallString2.txt

I did have the uplay launcher installed and after i found this message, i uninstalled it. However, this didn't stop this message from appearing.

I should probably also mention that i recently downloaded and installed discord. I have only used it to talk with my friends, i didn't join any public discord servers or downloaded sketchy files.

I'm at a loss here. Thanks in advance for any tips provided.
