    That one you're pointing to refers to Firefox, and Skype. Not sure what that's all about, but you could disable that one as well.
    Then let's see the Windows tab, and the Internet Explorer tab please.

    I don't see anything crucial in that list that couldn't be turned off. I don't see an AV entry though.
    I don't see how turning off the Flash updater is a good thing?! Honestly, it just leaves the system vulnerable.

    Yes, I realize you don't use Internet Explorer, but THAT is what is opening on you.

    Everything that I can see in the IE tab looks okay. Can you scroll down in the Windows tab so I can see the rest of them please?
    What email/method/client are you using for POP Peeper?
    I will be afk for about half an hour.

    I agree with Deacon Frost - there's nothing in startup that can't be disabled.
    cCleaner SkipUAC is nice to have so you don't have to answer the UAC dialog box

    Flash is different on Win8 / Win10.
    Flash Plugin - Keep it up to date and troubleshoot problems | Firefox Help

    Installing or updating Flash
    The Flash plugin automatically updates itself by default. If Mozilla's Plugin Check page or Adobe's test page says that Flash is outdated and you don't want to wait for the automatic update, you can update Flash manually by downloading and installing the latest version from Adobe.



    Getting back to the issue, please check the following settings:

    What browser is set as the default browser?
    --> Make sure set defaults shows Firefox

    What is the home page for that browser?
    --> Test: configure browser to use blank page or new tab

    All defaults have always been set to Firefox and same for the home page which is the main Firefox one. Thanks....

    Okay. Did you have a look where @essenbe mentioned?
    Task manager in search > Open Task Manager > Go to startup tab.
    Looking for Internet Explorer, or anything MSN or Bing?
