For a good month or so now Google Chrome has been starting up and reloading my previous session whenever my computer boots up. I don't even have to log on for it to restart as sometimes I can hear videos from the night before, well before I log on.
I've tried the following methods and none have yielded any result:
- I checked the startup folder in appdata (finding it via
- I tried to check the start-up tab under task manager. No mention of Chrome there.
- I looked in Chrome's settings to see if there were any options, none of the options I have on would make it start when my computer starts.
- I've even looked in the registry, under
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runto no avail. There's no value for chrome there.
I'm absolutely stumped. Virus checks have returned 0 threats, there's no indication that another program could be causing this (though I haven't actually confirmed this I can't think of anything else I run causing this issue at all, let alone at startup).
If anyone can shed some light on this, I'd be very appreciative.
EDIT: I've now even just ran autoruns, I've disabled anything to do with Google, not even just chrome and now I'm going to test. Well there's an interesting twist. I've now noticed that Chrome is opening only when left open, which is weird.
