    After running into some stability issues and random freezes with ArmA 3 last weekend (which were caused by 355.8x drivers and a nonexistent pagefile) I decided to run the extended memory diagnostics test during boot up (before knowing what was causing my issues) but now whenever I start my computer this ugly looking thing shows up in my taskbar?

    I have tried restarting my computer, right clicking on the icon itself, killing explorer.exe and by removing "IconCache" from appdata/local folder and all other caches with CCleaner, editing my register, disabling automatic startup in msconfig/task manager and finally by typing "bcdedit /bootsequence {memdiag} /remove" in CMD as an Admin without any luck?

    Windows 10 Pro x64 (10240)

    How in the world do I get rid of that annoying taskbar icon without breaking my register or is it already broken?

    I have already tried that and all of the above mentioned possible solutions without any luck.

    I opened up the task scheduler, checked the local scheduled tasks, looked for "MemDiag", double left click, right click, hit "inactivate" and now it's gone! Many thanks!
