Windows 7: Windows tutorial keeps randomly playing

Windows tutorial keeps randomly playing

As I view various web pages suddenly the tutorial starts playing an explanation of of how to clear cache and cookies. It is about 10 seconds long and then just stops. Nothing is disturbed and there are no icons referring to it, no pop up, nothing showing in the background. No apparent link anywhere on the screen or behind the window to shut it off.
It did happen after cleaning the computer with the CCleaner program that I use monthly to empty out the junk including cache and cookies etc.
I did a restart but that did not help.
What the heck is going on?

Well I have never heard of such goings on. I use Ccleaner several times a day. Just a though; any time my computer does something that I'm not telling it to do I get worried. If it was my computer I would run scans with my anti virrus. I would also run Malwarebytes Anti Malware and Super Anti Spyware. It can't hurt but might help. Your title indicates it's a Windows Tutorial their for I would run sfc /scannow in comd. prompt/admin to check and or repair system files.

Just a FYI...

Current accepted wisdom with Win 7 is to NOT use a cleaner.

If you ever think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, tuned-up, cured, tweaked, fixed, or optimized it shouldn't.

In other words, injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" CAN & DOES cause problems.

Should you decide to go ahead -
Make sure you have
1.a current System Restore point created.
2.a recent "Back up" of your computer- preferably to an external HD.

I should of mention before and I will now: I don't recommend using any registry cleaners. Their is one built into Ccleaner but I don't use it.

Yes I did. Showed up clean. It just starts up randomly explaining how to clear casch and cookies. Goes on for 10 seconds and then is gone. Very odd.

What browser are you using?
You could try another one.
From your first post I have the understanding that this problem only happens when you are on the net.
