CMD prompt showing up randomly; Don't have Office on computer nor tasks related to it.

Random CMD prompt window (maybe??) constantly popping up at random times, keeps alt tabbing me out of things that I'm doing. I DO NOT have Microsoft Office, and none of the previous ""fixes"" for this issue apply to my computer as these processes/tasks just simple do not exist on my computer. It's extremely irritating and has been disastrous for things like online gaming. I have Windows 10, and this issue has only recently been showing its ugly head. Never had it happen before.

Unfortunately, no. Any tasks that seemed odd or unknown i just googled and they ended up just being regular sort of background processes. No update themed processes either. I should also add that i did a few scans and they all came out clean so i’m almost certain it’s not malware. :(

Nothing out of my normal schedule, to be honest. Was just playing games and it randomly started happening. (Happens with all games, too, so not just specific ones.)

I believe it’s only happening when i’m playing games, because if it’s been happening outside of that i haven’t noticed. I tried doing the “fix” for something like this involving the nvidia control panel and setting t to a single display mode, but the options weren’t available to me.
