Hello my name is***** do not rate until we are finished. I look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem. If you upgraded to windows 10 recently you can go back to what you had before, if you want to do that let me know. Does this only happen with internet programs?
You do not have to wipe it you can revert if you upgraded recently and the upgrade is free for 2 years. After that 2 years is up if you do not upgrade you would have to pay. A driver would not cause this if it only happens on internet browsers. I apologize but I need to opt out and open this to all experts.
Hello, my name is Chris. I looked at your description of the problem and I agree with the last expert. Probably not a driver. I am curious. If you are using an anti-virus, does it check internet sites for you? I'm familiar with Norton doing background tasks and depending on your anti-virus, you might want to turn off internet protection and see if the problem is resolved. See if that helps. If not I'll opt out to another expert.
Hello again. Just my opinion but I've used both Norton and AVG and have tried them both with Internet protection turned off. If a website tries to install an infection to your local machine, your Norton should still flag it as a threat. Try it and see if that is the culprit. At the least, you'll have identified the problem. Good luck.
