Firefox Window On Startup (AutoCAD)

  UserCrane 02:31 27 Aug 2018

This started to occur a few weeks ago, and I am not sure why. Once my pc has started up a firefox browser is open with two windows, one is about a session restore and another titled "Update your pc" and talks about a program called AutoCAD. I haven't installed anything recently and have never used an AutoCAD program before. I've scanned with norton and malwarebytes for a potential virus or adware, but no pup or other potential threat was found. Neither could I find a related program in the "startup" window in task manager.

It sounds as if Firefox isn't closing properly. Try clicking ont he three-bar menu button top right, click on exit, then wait for Firefox to close down before powering down PC.

Have a look in Firefox add-ons (Tools - add-ons) to see if there is anything relating to Auto Cad - I assume you have checked in Programs to see if by any chance such an application has been downloaded? It is, I believe, a drafting sofrware application.
