Hello! Since 3 days ago I have had this problem of ANY internet browser that is the default browser opening up on its own on my laptop. However, It opens so fast I can't use the computer anymore. As soon as I log in to my computer, there are already atleast 10 browser pages trying to load the same home screen, and an additional 1-5 browsers pop up every second! This happens to which ever browser I pick as a default one. I have tried system restore with no luck. I have even tried a factory reset with no luck as well. The only solution I have to stopping the pages from opening is to shut down the explorer.exe process. It took me around 30 minutes to try to install another browser, and all that happens is it starts to just put more pages. I updated my malwarebytes and Avast! antivirus and did full scans, with nothing reported. If anyone has any tips for me I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

Install Google chrome on your system and set it as default browser. You can also disable IE on your computer as: Go to Control Panel-> Add/Remove Programs. In the left side you you need to click on Add/Remove Windows components and select internet explorer to disable.
