Just recently when I run MSconfig and select startup tab I noticed a ticked new item called Persecution Perturbations.
The manufacturer is listed as Radlight Inc.
The file path shown is C:\Users\NEILF\then ............. before Apps\Roaming etc.

I don't understand the ...... part so tried to find Manufacturer or startup item by searching under C:.
I had no luck.

On Google under Radlight Inc it describes them as media type -m4etc but nowhere is Persecution Perturbations mentioned.

Does anyone know of this Persecutions item? I can remove the tick for "run at startup" but would like to know more about it and if dangerous how to remove it since I can only see it under MSconfig Startup tab

FYI I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and MS Office 2016.
All my MS Win7 updates are current as at today.

thanks
Neil

Looks suspiciously like winamp in the screenshots.

Thanks for your comments.
Interestingly -it has since disappeared.
I unticked it in MSConfig Startup tab.
Yesterday morning I got a Trojan Threat detect ( no mention of Persecution etc.) from Microsoft Security Essentials - removed the threat and lo and behold
Persecution Perturbations has disappeared.

I'll accept the "win" but don't know why because when it (Persecution) appeared here was no threat warning.
