I got a malicious program on startup. Can't find the extentions to remove it.

I know how to get into MSCONFIG, I unchecked the box, but I can't find the specific program, with either regedit, or the specific file location its telling me. This program is called HvXIsP.exe, again, I can't find this .exe file anywhere. I'm not just trying to disable this on startup, I'm trying to remove this extension from the startup menu, and I'm at a complete loss as to how to do it.

Says the file location is C:\Users\name\appdata\roaming\microsoft\HvXIsP.exe - I disabled all hidden file features in windows, but the extension isn't in the above location.

Says the registry location is: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\currentversion\run - Checked this location with regedit, and its not there.

I tried googling HvXIsP.exe and came up with nothing. I'm 100% sure its malware.
