That's a new one. I saw many bug reporters simply deleting the issue
reporting template at https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/new
(and usually then filing only very little information, definitely not
enough to make sense of the bug report), but I never saw this bug
reporting template being used to report a Git for Windows bug to the Git
mailing list yet ;-)

This typically means that that process existed *at the time the installer
checked*. If it was a short-lived process, you can check again by clicking
