Default Weed identification

Hello, can anyone help toidentify this weed please and offer any thoughts on how to eradicate it? I have tried the usual lawn weed & feed in both granules & liquid but they don't seem to have any effect.

Many thanks for your help

Looks like ground ivy:

I have it and try to control by pulling and Weed-B-Gone but it is
persistent. Thanks to your post, I think I need the more effective
herbicides.

Yep, ground ivy.

"Found throughout the US, pacific northwest, Alaska, Canada, Europe,
and Asia".

That range of locations and environments explains why the stuff is so
hard to kill.

3rd vote for ground ivy. I have it in my lawn. The usual weed killer
does kill it.

I'd apply WeedBGone or whatever the local broadleaf weed killer
is with a tank type sprayer. Don't screw around with weednfeed.
Apply it at the max rate and adding one of the products that helps
make it stick to the leaves can help. Should be able to find that
at the garden shop. It may take a couple applications 10 days or
so apart.
