VST Search Pop Up During Boot

Hi everyone. Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but I can’t seem to see a solution to my specific issue.

Every time I open Cubase Artist 9 I get a pop up window. Cubase is looking for Waves 9.2 plugins folder. I haven’t used Waves for years, and I can’t figure out how to get it to stop doing this. Typically I just hit cancel and move on, but it’s gotten to the point where I finally want to do something about it.

I’ve gone to VST manager and I don’t see any Waves plugins in the list. I don’t see any Waves .dlls anywhere in my VST folders (vst 2 or vst3).

Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks!
