My computer is opening blank excel workbooks on it's own every 10 minutes. I'm using Window 10 Pro and Office 365.

I'm not having problems opening the file I want. The problem is when working in excel, the program is opening additional blank workbooks without clicking on them.

Hi MBeltran752,

Have you tried repairing office with the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant?

As a temporary fix you can  go to review > Protect Workbook > enter "123" in the password section , then it wont add. I am trying to recreate your problem and let you know.
