Dear Experts,

We used MDT for OSD but I found that after we installed Pulse Secure, it added to the startup option in Task Scheduler, however I didn't find its existence in any of the following locations:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
%AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

I've spent hours to find a solution from internet but to no avail. Anyone has any idea what other possible locations I can check on this? The aim is to run command line (cmd or powershell) to disable it from startup before handing the computer over to the users.

Any idea is warmly welcome and appreciated.
