I am using windows 8.1 64-bit, i5, HP-pavilion laptop.
So, I have no idea how or when it started but i noticed that occasionally my single click leads to multiple instances of that application i.e if i click vlc once multiple instance of vlc are opened same with other software but this happens only some time so I did a malwarebytes scan, Windows MSRT scan but nothing came up, still I restored my windows(formatted the c drive and reinstalled windows from my recovery partition ) i did not formatted the entire hard drive as i am not currently able to back up all the data (1tb) but after restoring windows there was no problem for like a month or so but the problem started again.
one more thing when I switch on my laptop and it reaches the password screen it automatically behave as if someone is continuously pressing enter and shows incorrect password this loop continues until I press any other key. what is happening?
Malware bytes and other scans of avast and windows shows nothing.How should I proceed?
