Computer keeps spamming file explorer tabs
No matter how many I exit it keeps opening them, one right after the other. File explorer, file explorer, file explorer, i'll end up having like 35 tabs open in about 5 minutes if im not exiting them. How do I stop this?

Huh. Could possibly be a stuck media button on your keyboard, I've seen many keyboards with explorer shortcut buttons.

I recommend to boot in safe mode and check if it keeps happening, as well as checking your keyboard.

I would agree, remove all of your removable devices and confirm whether this still happens or not.

RE: Computer keeps spamming file explorer tabs
Does it happen without you touching the keyboard or while you're typing? {Windows Key} + E is a shortcut to open explorer. Otherwise it might be a virus that spawns explorer to run another instance of a process with code injected into it. Most malware though is a bit more subtle and less obvious like this though.
