    Windows Explorer pops up at random


    RE 10 Home Build 16299.64.

    Windows Explorer keeps opening up at random, showing an external drive.

    This happens once or twice a day, with no input from me (computer can be 'idle' and it still happens).

    Also, on occasion the start menu button does nothing -- have to force a shutdown via Task Manager or power button.

    Am I looking at a clean install? Thanks.

    After this latest update, my screen would show IE open upon initial starting for the day. Happened twice and not since??
