I have been wrestling with a particularly nasty problem that I cannot get rid of. I'm running Windows 10 Professional 64-bit on an AMD FX-8350 based system. This problem occurs randomly. Sometimes it will not appear for hours and sometimes, it will appear right after I boot. Long story short, the following three "help" searches show up both in Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
They will sometimes open randomly when I am not using either browser or will open in a new tab, if I have a browser open. Sometimes, they will open multiple instances in new tabs if I'm using Chrome or tabs/cascade if I'm using Edge. They will sometimes appear when I click on any icon or on the desktop. An instance will appear sometimes for each letter I attempt to type into the address bar of a browser. When it rears it's head, I cannot use any program that requires me to type something. Oddly, this behavior doesn't happen when I'm in a game. Only solution is to restart my machine. Sometimes, it lies dormant after restart and others it comes right back.
I have used just about everything to get rid of it. Rogue Killer, Malwarebytes, Hijack This, Hitman Pro, Microsoft Safety Scanner, Malicious Software Removal Tool, TDSSKiller, Zemana, NPE, Spybot, Adaware, Super Anti-Spyware. Still no joy.
Has anyone seen this beast and have a solution?
Thanks in advance.
