    A few months back I started to get a screen pop up on startup called windows.plst (see image attached). I have searched online to see how to get rid of this but have come up empty.

    I was on Sierra previously and upgraded but that has not taken care of this problem.

    Does anyone know what this might be and how to fix it?

    That is a property list document. An application would be opening it, could it be in your login items?

    Just take a look at the menu bar to see what the active application is. By default, documents and apps that are open when you log out or shutdown are reopened when you log in or restart. Just close that document and/or app and it won’t open at login.
