If you see a second startup program of "Chromium - chrome.exe", it is also associated with the Chromium Web browser developed by the The Chromium Projects.

You will see the second "chrome.exe" listed on the Startup tab of msconfig.exe screen as:

Command: "C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\chromium\Application\chrome.exe" --no-startup-window
Location: HKU\S-1-5-...\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\

"bncsaui.exe" is most likely installed as a bundled program inside WinZip. You can use to browse Websites like Google Chrome.

It is strongly recommended to delete the second "Chromium - chrome.exe" from its registry location (HKU\S-1-5-...\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\) to remove it as a startup program. You can run it manually, when you want to use it. This will make your computer more secure.
