Hello,

I was away for 4 days cause of work, my computer was off. even from electricity. But now when I turned it on, no updates were applied, but File explorer started to open randomly by itself.

I tried sfc /scannow - nothing found. I am gonna do start-up test by Avast, I hope it's not caused by virus.

Any tips on fixing? Thanks.

Just check to see if there's anything making the keys stick. After all, holding down the Windows and "E" keys together will open File Explorer, so it could be something triggering that combo.

Also note that since the few Windows updates, when a program is NOT shut down before a restart, that program will not reopen when the restart is done.

How can I fix this? The E is not sticking. If it was then the E would also come up randomly when typing.

Have you closed all of these Explorer windows and then restarted your machine?
