This is my first post to a forum so please bear with me.
My name is Russ and I am an Electronic Technician in the Royal Australian Navy.
I have worked with computers for years but this fault has me stumped.
Basically every time I try to type a word in the windows search, ms office, notepad etc... a browser is launched as many times as I type.
i.e. if I type help.....I get four browser windows open.
I have consulted numerous techs and all say it is malware.
So I have run the following programs to fix this
ESET Virus / spyware scanner - nothing
Malware Bytes - Nothing
Microsoft Essentials - Nothing
There is one other but the name escapes me. But it found nothing also.
So after much deliberation I reinstalled Win7 over the top. Still happens.
Finally I have done a complete new install....and you wouldn't believe it still happens.
I even deleted the old windows files and still the same.
I am pulling my hair out here!!!!
My Laptop is a Satellite P200, Core 2 Duo with 3 GB RAM.
I am running 64 Bit Win 7 and have all latest updates from Microsoft.
Thank you for your help in advance.
