Would you like me to check your computer with the tools we use at the Malware Removal Forum? They could give us more information regarding your issue and perhaps reveal malware presence.

Let me know about that.

I see you have Sophos too as well as Avast. I am thinking that the command prompt opening is due to one of those antivirus programs. I get the command prompt showing too so I think that is normal. But I would suggest Dr. Ms suggestion and check for malware just in case.

So I should uninstall them? I understand it can be seen as not a problem but it is a little bit annoying. I checked for malware and I don't think there's any in my computer. It has been going on for a long time though, I've searched on the internet if there was any way to fix but none of the solutions at least the ones I saw worked for me.

Sophos and Avast may have different engines and can conflict with each other. You would want to use one or the other.

We have Sophos at work and lately it's been a pain to work with.

I thought I would be safer this way but it doesn't look so. Yes, Sophos is annoying sometimes.
