I have a problem with a command prompt popping up every few minutes non-stop. It alt-tabs me out of the fullscreen programs which is slightly annoying. I was able to notice once for what it's trying to open (C:\Users\Noahie\AppData\Roaming\jdjiiur) and it says it's a system file. Any ideas on how I could stop it from popping up?

tried running malwarebytes or Hitman pro?

Try a clean boot and see if it changes anything - make sure to read instructions and make sure NOT to disable any microsoft services or windows won't load right - https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

if clean boot fixes it, it shows its likely a startup program. You should, over a number of startups. restart the programs you stopped to isolate the one that is to blame.

i didn't think to look at autoruns as well its for start up apps, not random cmd calls. But its one more thing i need to remember

I can't find that file name anywhere
jdjiiiur.exe

Mozilla Firefox runs a new service called Default Browser Agent. It’s basically a string of text that the browser sends to the webserver it’s communicating with. The script contains information about the operating system currently in use, the browser running, its rendering engine, and other important details.

link shows how to disable it

its only meant to happen every 24 hours so sounds like your Firefox install might need a repair or reinstall. that might fix it instead of disabling it.
