    Hi folks,

    Over the last week or so something strange has been happening, when my laptop is sitting idle for a number or time, apps open themselves!

    It was just the settings app but since yesterday the settings, calendar and windows store apps are opening.

    any help would be great

    Doggey touchpad sticking? If when pressing down and the touch buttons stick that could cause an issue had something similar.

    Well an update...

    I went in and turned off Superfetch in the services and the programs haven't opened up since I did that, we will see how long this lasts

    TBH as said sticky keys or similar or.... check scheduled tasks. I don't know why but as soon as I read that I thought, it sounds like a prank to me. See if someone has put a time to in to start random programs

    Click the lower-left Start button, enter schedule in the empty box and select Schedule tasks from the results.
