Error message on start about (deselected) GedcomLexer plugin.

Great program, never had any problems, but after Notepad++ updating to v8.4.2, an error was given: plugin GedcomLexer is not compatible. Remove automatically --> Yes.
But on every start the error message reappears although the plugin is no longer selected in ‘Plugins’.
After updating Notepad++ to v8.4.4, the same error comes on every start.
Can you please check and repair this error?
Many thanks, Ar

Depending on the permissions on the
c:\program files\notepad++\plugins\folder hierarchy (or equivalent), Notepad++ may try to remove the old GedcomLexer plugin, but not be successful. Your options at this point are 1) to right-click on Notepad++.exe and Run as Administrator, and see if that will allow it to fully uninstall the incompatible plugin; or 2) to delete the
c:\program files\notepad++\plugins\Gedcom(or equivalent)
And it appears that a new version of GedcomLexer has been released which you can manually download and install, to make it compatible with Notepad++ v8.4-and-newer.
