Open taskmanager and check the startup tab, see if it is listed there.

Check C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
And
C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

and failing either or both of those look to these registry locations but of course back it up, create a restore point manually, and export the key prior to editing for safe keeping.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

You can also use AutoRuns from SysInternals, which may also help locate the problem. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

My Phone I believe you can uninstall.
Not the case on your phone, no option to uninstall, has a button to terminate, whcih I have found does didly squat, tried over n over... As for startup tab in Task Manager non of them are listed in startup.

Are you on 2004? Because I'm on 1909 and I don't have it running in task manager nor do I have it listed in the start menu. I'm sure I uninstalled it.

Have a read here

Means and methods may strongly depend on any disparity in versions and or build numbers.

Remove the Apps permission to run in the background by turning the switch to OFF. I am running 2004 and the app does not appear in taskmanager
