Re: Internet explorer opens automatically

On your start menu, choose the program list in Programs -> Startup If "Internet Explorer" is listed there, then delete it. Also check the homepage of internet explorer and change it to about:blank. Follow these steps:
  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Click on Tools menu
  • Go to Internet Options
  • Click on 'Use Blank'
  • And click Apply
