I'm not sure why this started happening, but now my internet explorer always starts upon bootup. I'm assuming something with one of their recent unknown updates that I despise. I've gone into msconfig and the startup items and IE is not in there. What may be causing it? I do NOT use Edge

Sounds like you installed something recently that may have had some malware.

Sounds like you installed something recently that may have had some malware.

I don't think so this time.  I actually ran into this with a computer that I setup a few days ago with a fresh Windows 10 install.  For it it seems to be a 90% of the time it starts the default browser at boot up (at first it did edge, once I installed and defaulted Chrome it changed to it).

 

I'll be honest I haven't even started looking at it as the build is very low priority at the moment but when I get back from the TV setup job I have in about an hour I think I'll dive into it and see what I can figure out.

It started after I tried to shut down one night and Windows wanted to do some updates, so I clicked on the Update and Shut Down option.... Thought it was some new default setting thing.

 

Oddly enough, It didn't do it today when I booted, but it has for the last month pretty much every time. I ran Malwarebytes in safe mode and it axed 7 hijack attempts.

 

 

I plan to redo Windows anyway at the end of the month. I need something to do on my 10 day vacation anyway

So I've been poking around the PC I was having the same issue with and so far nothing but after 3 reboots it only opened the browser once.  I honestly don't feel like fooling with it at the moment but at least I can pretty much rule out malware and the only software installed is Win 10 (ISO direct from Microsoft) chrome and steam. Maybe tomorrow I'll try a bit harder.
