I have posted about the problem of Cortana or maybe Search opening spontaneously and frequently. A bunch of people have looked at it but no answers yet.
The situation has escalated. Cursor jumps around, and just now everything under the sun on my desktop opened, like 5 copies each of 10 documents for instance.
I have looked up fixes for what all the sites call Cortana opening up. Moist of the solutions assume the problem is touch pad gestures, and how to turn them off. I've done it, and I don't use the touchpad anyhow. This is not the fix. If it is Cortana, apparently it is now a very invasive program and difficult to disarm.
Now, I do not know if this is a Windows problem, a hardware problem, or a virus problem.
Anyone familiar with this? Know where I should be posting the problem?
This computer is getting sporadically unusable.
'Nother thing: my wife was trying to get onto her AOL account on this computer and some window about Daily Sports Fantasy kept opening and wouldn't go away.
This is a Dell Inspiron 3541, 3 years old? Recently Windows crashed and I had to reinstall it.
