When I don't have a broswer selected, my default browser opens, and when the browser is selected, it keeps returning to its home page.
Its been occuring for several days now, and the only way I can stop it is by ending the processes explorer.exe
 
But it is still persistant after I did a fresh install and deleted everything off my C drive.
I've also unplugged my keyboard and reinstalled the drives, but that hasn't solved the problem either.
 
All I have found out is that it presses keycode 172.
 
Someone please save me from this madness!!

Seems to be a keyboard problem, I would go into Device Manager...uninstall the keyboard drivers...reboot the system and see if the situation goes away.

 

That failing, I'd try a different keyboard...possibly a stuck key.  The fact that it happens with a fresh install points to a hardware problem, IMO.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.

 

Checkmark the following checkboxes:

  List last 10 Event Viewer log

  List Installed Programs

  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

 

Click Go and paste the content into your next post.

 

Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792 , taking care to post the link.  Do not copy/paste data from the report.
