  • Your system is affected by some malware or virus. Did you scan your system using a latest AV product or defender ?

  • Hi,

    I want to confirm that did the issue only occur when you download pdf files? When you download other files, do you still get the same problem?

    Did the issue occur on other browsers?

    How to stop Chrome from opening multiple tabs when I start chrome up?

    If the problem only occurred on Chrome, you need to connect Chrome support for further help.

    If the problem still persists, I’m afraid there should be a virus, you need to take a full scan.
