  voldamort 08:08 AM 04 Jul 13

i am having this unique prob with my laptop. i a using window 7 . i recently reinstalled my window and after that i am facing this issue.Every time i close the lid after 20 or 30 minutes i see lots of firefox almost 50 plus opened . same with google chrome.. And whatever applications are on desktop they also open multiple times. Like counter strike game,vlc player. Sometimes there is even download options and some pages opened in firefox.. I have used eset NOD32 , avast ,spybot , malwarebyte... they all clean some virus but problem still exist.

I don't know if it has anything to do with your problem but you seem to be running 2 anti virus - eset NOD32 and avast. If this is the case you should uninstall 1 of them as they will interfere with each other.

"Every time i close the lid after 20 or 30 minutes i see lots of firefox almost 50 plus opened . same with google chrome.................."

It sounds like a peculiar action has been assigned to the closing of the lid.

You may find that tweaking a power settings helps so go to Control Panel -> Power Options. In the left-hand pane click on "Choose what closing the lid does" and set it to "Do nothing" for both power plans.

You cannot safely run 2 antivirus programs at the same time.
