Windows 7: Every time I plug in my pc, internet browser windows start popping up.

Every time I plug in my pc, internet browser windows start popping up.

For a few months now, every time I plug in my pc for charging, internet browsers start popping up repeatedly. It's unbearable. Whenever I try typing something, the page constantly refreshes itself so whatever I've typed gets erased. I've scanned using Bit defender, Avast, Microsoft Security Tool, name it. Whenever it isn't charging it works as usual.... I've done a clean reinstall and nothing has solved it..any idea of what it could be or what I could do to solve this?

Get a perfect baseline Clean Reinstall testing for this issue after each batch of updates/drivers are installed, then after each individual program is installed. This should reveal which program is responsible, possibly from spyware add-ons slipping through during install if you aren't vigilant enough. However sticking with the steps, tools and methods should result in a perfect install for as long as you do so.

I'd also watch closely the browser add-ons to only allow those you know you need to open pages correctly, and run SuperAntiSpyware free scan regularly.

Browser start time.
Hi Folks, My browser, FF 19.0.2 is getting slower in starting on both my computers. I have tried waiting at least 5 minutes after powering on my pc's before doing anything. Event Viewer shows nothing out of the ordinary. Is their any way to see just how long it takes other than a stopwatch.
