Do you have / have you ever had/ a software called AutoPlay Menu Builder by Linasoft installed? If not, have you installed any new software/ made any recent changes to your computer?

I suggest a full scan of your computer with Malwarebytes Anti Malware followed by a full scan using your Anti Virus program.

References to pleasewait.exe inconclusive at best, potentially unwanted program (PUP) at worst:
Malware scan of pleasewait.exe (AutoPlay Menu Builder) 7a2d34ecbc811246685ed1a6bd7e0b2c90210fb1 - herdProtect
