    Windows 10 opens multiple tabs when downloading BBC iPlayer


    I've have downloaded the BBC iPlayer app, but when I try to download a TV programme, I just get lots and lots of new tabs opening and I have to shut down my computer to close them. I have 100s of tabs within less than a minute. Please help me in very, very easy steps as I am not very computer literate. Thanks.

    Thanks. I have been on the BBC iPlayer Help and also chatted with someone. They said to clean my history, which I have done both on Chrome & Firefox. I've rebooted over half a dozen times, as I cannot close all the 100s of tabs until I reboot. I have spent hours trying to solve this problem, but to no avail.

    What browser are you using? Sounds like it is a browser problem, not a windows issue.
