Oculus home opens up spontaneously multiple times a day.

For some reason it started appearing on system startup.  I "x" it out.  A few hours later it will randomly pop up again, even when no one is using the computer.  What is the deal?  How do I get it to stop?

    Do you have SteamVR installed too? I had simmilar thing yesterday. SteamVR randomly would launch by itself and start Oculus app too. Uninstalled SteamVR and all is good again.

    I do, but I don't load steam most of the time.  When it is happening, steam vr is not loaded and steam isn't on.

    Is the vr headset being moved, even a little nudge when this happens? If you right click the oculus shortcut, properties, then the compatability option, then at the bottom change settings for all users, check the box to run this program as administrator, ok, apply, ok. It should not run even when you put the headset on. It will only run if you open the app. Same with steamvr, u can launch without having oculus also running.

    Maybe a cat or a dog that puts his paw on the headset sensor (The orange LED inside the headset) ?
