@WoAh_ThErE_BuSt Welcome to HP Forums Community!

You mean they had multiple "virus" or antivirus? do confirm.

 

Also, please go ahead and run a complete anti-virus scan on your device using the safe mode, here's how to access it: Click here, if the issue persists on the safe mode as well, you may want to perform a power reset using the steps mentioned here,

If nothing works, the device could have been compromised by spyware, I suggest you perform a system reset using the steps mentioned in this link: Click here.

 

Let me know how that pans out,
