Machines are opening browser - MSN.com* when computer starts up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Within the past few weeks, I have noticed that when I turn on my computer's (Many different make's +models + OS's), the default browser (Chrome, EDGE, IE), seems to open a browser and attempts to load - https://www.msn.com/?ocid=wispr&pc=u477

    I have very strict firewall rules that do not allow MSN.com.

    I know there are many articles about this from years ago, but has anyone else been seeing this recently?

    Any help would be appreciated!


    Thank
