This type of issue is not one that is precisely covered by statute or case law, however, there has been some effort to compile a search of what courts have been requiring website companies to show in order to prove a binding contract (see: https://www.eff.org/wp/clicks-bind-ways-users-agree-online-terms-service).
However, if you have a website that has been "rechecking" boxes that you have already "unchecked" (or unselected) and that website (or rather the company that owns the website) is now attempting to hold you liable for some contract due to these auto selections, you would have a strong defense against this contract claim by showing that you did not consent to the contract and that the company's website created a contract by fraud utilizing their website to create a false agreement.
