Windows 8 programs and start menu keep randomly popping up help!

Ok so I have started a windows 8 program, I hide it and go to my desktop and use programs chrome etc. every few minutes that same program I hid keeps popping up, I close it and it keeps popping up for 3-5 times and then it goes away. Anyone know what causes this?
PROBLEM SOLVED (for me)!  I had this problem for the last week on my new computer.  Seemed like the 'start' button was continually being pressed.  Did you happen to have a wireless keyboard that you switched out for another that is still nearby your I did.  Turns out I forgot to pull the battery from my wireless keyboard and also didn't pull the usb for the remote communicator.  I tucked the keyboard on a shelf above the computer.  The 'Start' button got pressed against a book so it was always "pressed" and always communicating with the computer.  Just happened to realize this when I thought about trouble shooting with my original keyboard.  When I pulled it from the shelf, the problem stopped.  Hope this helps!
