I have a HP Envy Laptop that opens multiple Bing browsers every 5-10 Keystrokes. I've tried Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer and they all do the same thing. I've run a virus check, downloaded Malware programs all have come back with no issues. I've run chkdsk and again all came back with no errors.

Any help with this?

    Have you tried another (USB) keyboard? – DavidPostill May 30 '17 at 11:27
  • Is there any particular key pressed when this occurs? I find it bizarre to blame this on the keyboard. Does this also happens when you on desktop using arrow keys to navigate icons? – Vylix May 30 '17 at 11:57
  • Did you reset all Internet options from Windows to default and disabled all addons? – Wiffzack May 30 '17 at 19:36
  • I think a lot of people are looking at this an tilting their heads. The keyboard aspect seems a little odd. It's more likely you already have a browser open and that over time is opening new windows. Just for clarity, can you start the computer in safe mode with network. Only open a new text file and test that theory that your keyboard opens a new window? – JustAGrump May 30 '17 at 20:28

Run MSRT (Malicious Software Removal Tool).

Check for any malicious files and also go to properties of the browsers shortcut.

  1. Go to shortcut Properties
  2. Go to Shortcut tab, Target location is properly located.

Sometimes you can see additional URL after the program location (for example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "www.bing.com" "google.com"). Remove the URLs from the Target which may redirect it.
