The Cause of Internet Explorer Auto Start

1. Virus

The first is that your windows have been infected by a virus, even though internet explorer has never been used, it could be because of this virus the browser will open by itself because of the command from the virus. Maybe before this incident, you have installed illegal software that is spread on the internet, this also triggers the emergence of viruses on your device.

Because illegal/crack software is software that has been modified by irresponsible people, it could be that the installation file has been infiltrated by a virus file, you have to be smart about installing illegal software so that it has no effect on your windows device. Do not just click the link that leads to a particular site that gave rise to the virus.

2. From Add on

The next cause that makes internet explorer open by itself is an add-on which is the default browser application that functions to interact with various web content, such as videos and games. Among them are Adobe Flash, Live Streaming IG story, and others.

If you install an add-on from an untrusted source, this can cause an error in the internet explorer. For that make sure you install the add on from a trusted developer so that your device is safe from problems on computers and laptops.

That's how to deal with internet explorer which opens by itself. if that method doesn't work it's most likely because it's been infected with malware/virus that has infected your device, this malware is set to open strange webs.
