    Command prompt keeps popping up randomly, any help appreciated.


    Hi, so I bought and upgraded to windows 10 today. All day long, at random intervals, I have a CMD window opening up and closing itself almost instantly with about 6 lines of text.
    Unfortunately it happens so fast that I can't catch a glimpse of what it's really doing.
    Are there any methods of disabling CMD from being launched(i doubt it but hey) or is there any way to figure out which process is causing this? any log file I can check?
    It's incredibly frustrating because it minimizes whatever I'm doing.

    There was a case of this happening in old insider builds I remember.

    I see from your specs you are on build 10240 - perhaps you should go to windows update and upgrade to the latest November build 10586 -perhaps it will go away..

    As for checking it you could go to Task Scheduler > Action and turn on All task history and then have a look in Event viewer next time it happens...

    In addition, you can also download: Process Lasso Portable Edition (No installation needed)
    Run to monitor all running processes and look in the Actions Log to determine what process invoked the command prompt.

    This is the event that caused the CMD pop-up I think. Can't be sure but it's the first thing I noticed.

    Edit: I also updated to the latest build
