Hi,my internet browser keeps turning on by itself randomly. I did alot of virus checks and still no luck. It seems to be a deeply rooted virus. I changed the default browser, but it doesn't matter, internet browser just keeps turning on at random times, and sometimes, several times.

It does sound like Malware. Are you able to browse normally when this happens? Have you tried scanning with Malwarebytes' Anti Malware?

What browser+version are you running?

Its mostly caused by Adware. I have faced such issues a lot. To stop it, close all the programs that you use while you are browsing the internet e.g IDM or Hotspot Shield. If this don't works then an anti-virus will help you.

Scan it with Mbam as suggested before then post the resulting log in this thread.
