Randomly opening folders has been traced to other causes. But if you must go beyond the usual scans noted by Grif at http://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/how-to-remove-pup-option-603542/#post-f742c795-5881-433b-a29b-6d758efe5cd3 heed over to Bleepingcomputer.com and follow their rules about a post and it will take some time but they use other scans and tools.
Could someone be using Google Earth Pro to have remote access to my computer?
First, some specifications:
OS: Windows 10 Home, 64 bits
PC model: Lenovo ideapad 310S
Issue with program: Google Earth Pro
So, for like two weeks I've been observing that whenever I was navigating with Google Earth, some random programs and folders from the taskbar would eventually open. No files would open, just the program (e.g. Microsoft Word or Excel) or the folder. This had never happened before and has never happened since I stopped using Google Earth during the last couple of weeks. It's very weird, but I think that somehow, somebody or some malware might be exploting Google Earth in order to have remote access to my desktop or taskbar. I don't know how that would happen, just know that it happened. Avira, Malwarebytes and Spybot scans didn't reveal anything bad. So, here I am. Thanks in advance for any answers you could provide.
