TestComplete opening random windows programs
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced/has a fix for a weird 'feature' I have been experiencing with TC.
When using TC, I will randomly get windows programs opening up (Microsoft Store, Calculator and/or Settings - or varying combinations of).
This can be from performing a test run, opening a project, closing TC down. I have even seen it do it while object spy was finding things.
Has anyone else experienced this? Are there strange gremlins in my system?
I am running win10, and have the latest version of TC (has been happening on many TC14.X versions).
Its not causing any real issue, just an annoyance.

To sum up the workarounds:
- Disable the Superfetch service.
- Disable all background apps in Start > Settings > Privacy > Background apps.
- If you do not need to test Windows Store apps, disable TestComplete option Enable support for testing Windows Store applications in Tools > Options > Engines > General Options and restart TestComplete.
