Have you tried another browser... Edge, Chrome, Opera to see if it is happening on those as well? This let's you know if it's browser related or specific to your computer.

Your original post didn't indicate that you used Chrome as an alternate to Firefox, it just said you used Firefox which is why I asked if you tried any other browsers.

Sorry, but I'm not sure what else to suggest. I would say it's probably a hardware issue but then you'd see similar issues in overall computer use.

You need to remove all of your AV programs and the reinstall on one.
One should NEVER run more than one AV program as they tend to FIGHT each other.
What are the 4 that you have running now?

I agree with this 100%. Uninstall all AV's except for one. I use Windows Defender. Find it the most lightweight and least intrusive. I use Ad Block Plus in each browser and common sense in not opening unknown files and have not had a virus in many, many years.

Greetings,

Recent research shows that you must only have one real time AV protection on your system. More than one AV or malware blocker will conflict. You need to uninstall Iobit and Advanced System Care 11. Not only will more than one AV running in full time conflict, it will slow down your system and make your security WORSE. The reason is because each system has its own way of dealing with malware and AV protection. Code is written differently for each security system. You have security CONFLICTS in your computer. One program wants to do something one way, but it can't because the other security programs are conflicting against each other. Your speed will suffer, your reliability will suffer, and your security is worse. Not better. I would also dump CC Cleaner, It has been known to delete good things. You have way too much on your system causing conflicting protection.

Here's what to do to speed up your system and this should help with the strange background:

1.) Uninstall all of those three conflicting security programs. Uninstall CC Cleaner Reboot after each uninstall.
2.) Clear File History and Cache from all used web browsers
2.) Run Check Disk (You will need to run it as an administrator) Here's how to do that: (This is the most thorough way.) It will scan your system for errors and repair them.

4.) With all other security programs uninstalled, type "Windows Defender" (no quotes) in the search box. Turn it on and follow any other prompts. Windows Defender is really improved in Windows 10. It is just as good if not better than many of the paid AV products. Using this with your already used Ad Block Plus in each of your web browsers will keep you protected.

5.) Have Windows Update turned on. You can postpone the twice a year feature updates for a couple of weeks or so when released to get the bugs out. Monthly security updates should automatically install, and you should see those added ASAP. Active Hours, now called Focus Assist in build 1803 allows you to customize how and when you want to install updates or see pop-up information. You can set up to 18 hours of time for when you don't want to be distracted.

6.) Back up your data to at least two sources of your choosing. This should be at minimum all your files like pictures, documents, and bookmarks. You can do any of the following:

a. Back up to a Flash Drive
b. Use secure online cloud based storage such as Google Drive or Microsoft One Drive
c.) Get a second hard drive for back up.

7.) Use care in opening and downloading files. Don't do it for unknown files or email attachments from unknown senders.

You really need to have only one real time AV or malware protection program running on your system. The fact that you have around four, is the source of your problems.
