Solved!

Persistent MSN tab in Chrome

HP Recommended
Slimline 270 - a047cb
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Using Chrome as default browser, and with just 2 tabs specified for startup, multiple MSN news tabs will open within minutes after starting browser.  I have used the Block extension for MSN page, and now get multiple “blocked site” tabs popping up!  How do I prevent this insidious MSN page from opening?

@WineCDR I recommend you check with an alternate web browser just as IE, Firefox or Edge and check if the issue persists, if it doesn't, please reinstall the Google Chrome browser, 

If the issue persists on all browsers, this could be an issue with a spyware or virus infection, please run a complete virus/spyware scan and get back to us with the results.

 

With that said, Welcome to HP Forums! 😉

Keep us posted.

 

I hope that answers your query,

@riddle_decipher, thanks for your reply!   Uninstalled Chrome and did a Full Virus Scan (using Avast Premium).  The scan was clean.  I reinstalled Chrome and re-set my opening page (Gmail).  Several minutes after opening Chrome, that darn MSN tab opened up again.  Yes, it happens using IE or Edge as well.  And sometimes, it opens up 3 or 4 identical MSN tabs in a row.  This is my mother-in-law’s computer and this is quite frustrating for her!
