For some reason, my computer if left alone will start opening the calculator program by itself every once & a while. If I haven't been at it for a while, sometimes there are 4 or 5 calculators up that I have to remove.

The Start Menu & Windows Media Player (before I switched everything to VLC) pop up too.

Anyone seen/heard of this?

im not sure really but it sounds like a virus or spyware to me it may be a all new type that that protection and antis may not detect but i have had problems with my mouse moving around while i was gone i only caught it because i was on the phone and it started doing this so it may be something that gets in and does random things to random computers. im not saying this is fact just suggestion.
