Hi I am new here.

I am running Win XP Home SP2 and recently my computer has been making random background noises. Its like an IE7 mouse click. Sometimes it plays ads in the background and sometimes for long periods of time. I have had no other programs open that have advertisements built into at the time. I have AVG Free and it has decteted several trojans. So I stumped upto this point.

here is my HJT Log.

Mind you I did not have IE7 running at the time but HJT picked it up. Not sure... Anyways

Hi, I have been battling an issue where i keep on getting forwarded to webpages that I don't mean to go to, and are related to the webpage i was just on.

Other times, sound starts playing that sounds like a commercial in webpages that shouldnt have anything playing on them.
I ran MSE, Super Antispyware, Spybot, and Malware Bytes all in Safe Mode with no success.

Thank you for any help.
I use Google Chrome and Win 7 64.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top o...

While working on my EEEPC I keep hearing random noises coming out of the speakers. These sounds vary from three pings in a row to a sound I can only describe as someone pouring water out of a bottle. I ran my anti-spyware software from Norton Antivirus but it does not come up with anything strange. Please help.

Unfortunately I do not have access to a Windows Install Disc or Boot CD

I have 2 issues that have shown up on my PC.

HJT Log follows the description of both issues.

I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad R61i (7732/A12), Vista Ultimate w/SP2, 2GB RAM. Security is Windows Live Onecare. All O/S patches up-to-date.

Issue 1: Random Sound

Periodically the system will start playing random sounds. The sounds have been song clips, or synthesized cat meows. Not files from my computer (heaven forbid!). If I close my browser (Firefox 3.0.11), the sounds will stop. I have already checked Firefox add-ons, which are: "Down Them All", "Move Media Player" and "Speed Dial". All are up-to-date.

Issue 2: Random "lock computer and go to login screen"

If I leave my computer for a short time (less than 5 minutes) periodically the system will lock the computer and go to the login screen.

I am not talking about a system / browser / application lock-up.
I am talking about the system leaving the user logged in, but going to the login screen. To get a visual of what I am talking about, press <CTRL><ALT><DELETE> and select "Lock This Computer" (or press windows-L).

Screen saver is set to "None".
Current power plan is "Timers off (Presentation)"

If I have not been specific enough, I greatly apologize.

I am very grateful to all of you who volunteer to help.

Bill

Issue 2 has been resolved.

Appears to simply have been something corrupted in configuration.

4. Changed screen saver back to "none"
5. Changed power plan back

I need help knowing how to remove random sound clips that keep coming back. They seem to run constantly in the mornings, and run from 1 second to up to 15 seconds each. They sound like radio and commercial clips. I need detailed help instructions cause I'm not a computer genius.
Thanks for any help.

A:Random sounds

Hello scorehi, Welcome to TSF!

I notice that you have already posted a HJT log with the HJT Forum.
This problem looks as though it is malware related, and you are with the right team in the HJT forum.
So as not to confuse the issue, this thread is now closed.

Kind Regards,

Ok, I am having this problem whereby at random I get the sounds that the computer normally makes when something is plugged into the USB port. That little "up" chime. Then usually right after that I get the unplugged or "down" chime. The weird thing is that I am not plugging or unplugging anything. Does anyone know where this could be coming from?

Hello,

I have a 6 month old HP Pavilion dv6000 lap top running Windows Vista (sigh)...

I have this strange problem with random sounds playing while I am doing things on my computer. I was writing a paper the other day and this extreamly loud noise came out of no where. Then a couple days ago i was just lookin at some stuff on the web and random fart noises started playing... It actually just happened right now. It is extreamly annoying if someone knows how to stop this from happening I would be very greatful.

So far I think I've encountered the following on my computer and removed (or have I?) most of them:

Security Tool, Windows Police Pro, AntiVirus Pro 2010, feedwater.com stuff, cleantraffic1.com, AntiVirus Plus

Right now I only occasionally get pop-ups about working at home with Google, theres also random warning noises that happen, but no windows pop up. As mentioned in the Topic, I cant run Windows Media player or dds.scr. I frequently run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it finds new infections even when I flip the switch to disable my wireless connection, so that must mean there's an infection in there and I kind of suppress it, but not kill it am I right? I update it right before I do a scan also.

I've used, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (as mentioned), Windows Defender, Windows Malware Removal Tool, and maybe something else.

I have a HiJackThis log and a RootRepeal log, but as mentioned DDS doesnt want to run.

Thanks for any help in advance. I've tried my best to not annoy anyone on any forums, but I've come to the point I just can't get it all out without help.

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

About a month after I got an HP Pavilion laptop running Windows Vista it started making periodic sounds. 2 or 3 times a day the computer announces "I am French". I can't figure out any keystrokes or other activity that would generate it. It also makes a couple of nonsense sounds (like vroom) with less frequency.

It doesn't seem to be causing any problems on the computer and endless virus and other mal-ware searches don't pick up anything but I worry that something is burried in there. The laptop is about 5 months old.

Has anyone run into something similar or have suggestions on where to look? I really REALLY don't want to reformat the drive and re-install the operation system.

thank you.

hi,,,, strange eh,,, with it only being 5 months old, its still under warrenty,,, could you give the shop a call, or if you got it online maybe ring the manufacturer & see if they know what it is.

About 2 weeks ago, I started hearing random sounds from my speakers/headphones.

At fiirst there was only one sound, something that resembles a guitar solo, the only connection I could make was that I recently bought GTA4 and that required me to install Rockstar Social Club, I made the connection because it was a guitar solo.. and Rockstar being... rockstar. However, I have tried closing the client and waited, and yet the sounds still play.

The sounds play at completely random intervals, but it seems to be occuring more and more frequently. Not only that, since the first sound, other sounds have been introduced. The second sound was something that resembled a man talking/laughing.

Then after a week or so, which became yesterday, I heard a new sound which was quite scary. It was a sound a of a young girl humming a tune.

Today, I yet again experienced a new sound, something that sounds like a startup sound for a program that was only 1-2 seconds long and resembled a piano.

I have tried researching the problem by googling "random sounds", and I found a lot of results, while they were similar, they did not appear to be the right one.

I even saw one on this forum, which led me to post.

Others who have experienced random sounds had bad processes that I can't seem to find, or files in system32 folder which I can't seem to find.

Here is the info the forum required me to get.

A:Random pop ups and sounds.

It started as a little pop-up ballon in the task bar with a picture of a red shield (similar to McAfee) with a white "X" in it with a message of "You have a security problem!" If you click on the icon to get more information, nothing happens.
Then I started to get "Alerts". The boxes that pop up and you can't click on anything else and those have "Alert" in the top bar and have a message of "You have a security problem! Do you want to scan your computer for viruses?" and Yes or No boxes. I have not selected "Yes" at all so I don't know what that would do.
Then all the other pop ups started and most of them have the fake virus scans on them but some are for other things. These are all IE based but I only ever use Firefox.
Lastly, I now have random audio blurbs play in the background. Even when no windows are open things will start playing like, "Click here to claim your free iPod", or the audio to a movie preview and now it's even gotten to the point where I hear what seems like a foreign tv show.

Occasionally while surfing the web using firefox, I hear strange noises. Sometimes it just birds chirping or the axel-f crazy frog song. I think it has to do with firefox because when I close firefox its stops the noises. What is it, how did i get it and what does it do??? I have a laptop and a desktop and both make the noises.

Laptop = xp home sp2
desktop = xp home sp1

A:Random Sounds

Hello,

your problem is not in firefox.... it is most likely in the website ads that you visit ;). Judging by the sounds... and that it is on both computers will looking at websites that is. What do you do...
1. turn off the speakers
2. run ur pc over with a truck

OR

4. the smart thing, go get firefox add ons that disable ads, then if u hear it make ad-block kill it off for you.

To anyone who can help:

My computer recently had a series of pop-ups attack. I ran my Symantec Anti-Virus, Spybot, and Ad-Aware systems to get rid of any viruses. After doing all of this multiple times, a new problem started occurring. Randomly music, advertisements, or sounds will play on my computer even though I have no windows open. When I open the task manager and check which system seems to be operating, one of them called d.exe seems to be taking up a good chunk of the processing power.

My computer makes weird audio sounds at times. A few days ago my anti-virus software blocked numerous trojan viruses when I was downloading a file, the same day the audio sounds started.

my problem sounds a lot like this guy's:

should i follow the same steps he did?

So, I've got a strange problem that I've tolerated for a few months now.... I was hoping some of you guys might be familiar with it.

This will sound odd, but on occasion, my Vista desktop will make noises... as if it is tuning into an internet radio station for 3 to 6 seconds or so, and then cuts off. It's not so often that it's a huge problem... but it does get annoying or startling at times.

Sometimes the sounds are the same, but usually different... like commercials or something.

I'm sure it's a virus/trojan/malware or something... but I haven't been able to figure out what it is. I'd hate to do a full rebuild of my machine as I have done a lot of work getting it setup the way I like it (except for this of course!).

Thanks,

So I already had a thread going about an issue with sounds being played on my computer without me doing it. Short half second clips of screams, rock music, beeps and boops like AIM noises, among other things. and after working on all the scans for a few weeks I decided to back up inportand files and format my computer.

Aftter formating; making sure I formated all 3 partitions; I reinstalled the opperating system and a few of my basic chat programs - Skype, AIM, Xfire, and Ventrilo. and a few other programs like Zune, VLC media. - And without taking a break the sounds were still playing on my machine. (Note p2p and Mcfee antivirus programs have not be installed.)

Not sure if this means the problum is installed itself somewhere other then my Hard drive, but I am currently re running the DDS and GMER scans and will post new info in a few hours. untill then here is the link to the old thread I had open. http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...ml#post1875885

Hey guys, im having an issue with this virus I seem to have got that make random audio noises at random.
I will be on my computer or even just having it on in anther room and hear random things like " you have mail" or once I heard a random Indian song being played. The confusing part is I have no Indian music on my computer what so ever.

I ran Malwarebytes and it did not find anything. I ran my Avast full scan, quick scan and boot scan and nothing came up. I ran another anti virus program (cant remember the name) which I deleted after it did not find anything either.

Im running Windows 7 64 bit, im open to any suggestions if you have any. Im fairly new to virus deleting so please make the steps on how to go about things as easy as possible for a none techy like myself. And more info you need to help my solve my problem please ask I will be glad to get it for you (if I know how).

well I turned on my computer today and it runs just fine, it's just that at completely random times I will hear flash advertisement sounds like "Congratulations, you have been selected to win a free laptop computer." no internet browser windows are open when it happens, anyway I can find out whats causing this and get rid of it? Since it's just a noise, I can't give any screenshots, I've also run multiple scans with Malwarebyte and spybot search and destroy and got nothing

So I have been reading through the fourms and found a few threads like mine but none of their soultions have helped me so ill make my own thread. Over the past few months 4-6random 1second clips have been playing on my computer while doing normal things. I have tried disconecting the internet and the sounds continue. Also when the clips play I notice the ffdshow icon in the corner of my screen but I can't find ffdshow audio installed anywhere on my machine. Running WinVista Home SP1 if it helps.

I've run avast! and ad-aware and they found nothing. Visually, nothing looks different, I don't see any windows or programs pop up. I have not been looking at the task manager when this has happened, so I don't know if anything shows up there. To me the clips sound like ads you might see on bigger websites.

I have a challenge for you. For a while now my laptop has been making a piano chord sound, at random. It seems to be unrelated to my actions - it simply, every now and then, makes a piano chord sound. Obviously this is very annoying, all the more since I'm composing music on this laptop. It would be great to know how to make it stop! Some observations: - It seems to occur more and more frequently - Often the random sounds only start to occur after I start certain software. Specifically, games such as Left 4 Dead and my DAW software, Cubase 5. HOWEVER, after closing those programs, the sounds still tend to occur. Also, it doesn't always start after launching such software - but it tends to. - There seems to be a spike in CPU activity at the moment the sound occurs. What I've tried so far: - Turning Windows notification sounds (all of them) off. That didn't help, so it doesn't seem to be Windows. - Checking what sound file is accessed using the Process Monitor tool. It didn't report any audio file access after the random sound... I checked for wav, mp3 and ogg. - A full system virus scan. It didn't yield anything. Now I really don't know where to look. Could it, perhaps, have something to do with the DirectX ASIO driver?

I get a simple beep or multiple beeps every 4 to 5 minutes or so throughout the day. It is driving me nuts. Is there any way to figure out what 8 is trying to tell me? It is kind of similar to removing or inserting a USB device in 7, but not exactly. So I detached all USB devices and I am still getting the sounds. Is there some type of "Windows 8 Sound to Human" translation table somewhere so that people can figure out what the &!$% MS is trying to tell us?

Check "Event Viewer" it should mark all the events. Could also be a virtual device that is coming on and off.

Every time my computer starts up I get a random pop up. Then these usually stop and are replaced by sounds. If I then open a game it gets minimized every few minutes. Random sounds are usually those from adverts found on sites.

If anyone can suggest anything to help me, I've used 3 programs so far and they call turned up nothing but a few cookies. I'm totally stumped.

A:Random computer sounds

I don't know if your problem is malware related or not, but it sure sounds like it. So let's take a look and see.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. Open up the result.txt file created. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it back here. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless. Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.

I've been having this really strange problem lately. Sometimes when I plug in or in rare cases when I unplug my headphones random sounds starts playing. Advertising, sounds from movies, music, anything.

It seems to start playing, not at the beginning of the "sounds", and it does not play until the end of them. Also, these sounds are NOT on my computer anywhere. They are completely unrecognized by me. When they play, a strange "program" appears in the sound mixer. See attached screenshot.

Anyone else having this problem?

A:Random sounds play

Sorry for another post, it seemed like the image was deleted from the host server.

Also, I might add that there are often several random sounds playing simultaneously.

A:my comp always sounds like it is running

It's probably time to back up all your data and re-install XP. That usually works wonders when everything seems to have slowed down. And after re-installing, be very critical of what else you install (Applications etc). Only install what you really need.

Another possible cause of slow-down is that the hard drive may be filling up. This leaves less free space for Windows to "breathe" properly. Have a good critical look at what can be uninstalled (especially large applications).

If you've got gigabytes of your own files on the C: drive, consider moving them to an external drive or DVDs (DVDs are the safer option if stored away properly, as all hard drives fail eventually)

So the past week or so, my computer's both started to have voices coming from the speakers. Either some kind of music, or it would be a news program. It always happens when noone is on the computer. I checked my task manager and saw that no applications were running but when i looked in the processes, internet explorer was running. Id then end the process and the news/music would stop.

I have run scans on my computer and it has found nothing. Im running Vista Ultimate 64 bit, and just recently updated to IE8 yesturday to see if it would fix the problem but it hasn't.

Any idea's?

A:Sounds from computer when nothing is running

Solution: 1: Create restore point and take registry backup.
2: Delete all temp files.
3: Delete all unwanted software's and security software's from add/remove program.
4: Disable all unwanted services from startup and then remove from registry.
5: Reset internet explorer and then register all .dll files.
6: Scan with spyware removal and trojon removal.
8: Restart the computer.

idk what is going on, but on seemingly random occasions (it might happen in 30 seconds, it might happen in 3 weeks) my computer will play a random sound, sometimes the same random sound consecutively (one is a person laughing, another I think is the beginning of a linkin park song, and another one I cannot describe).

Sometimes it annoys me, and a bit of the time it doesn't. All I know is that when it bothers me, it pisses me off.

SOME OTHER POSSIBLY PERTINENT INFORMATION:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast 5, and Microsoft Security Essentials all report a "Clean" status. No strange internet traffic detected by Comodo Firewall.

"dllhost.exe" seems to run when it happens, and continue to run UNTIL I ROLL OVER IT IN TASK MANAGER. Weird...

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

HiJackThis didn't seem to show anything suspicious, but I wouldn't know.

Other than this, the system seems utterly clean. No system slowdowns, no nothing. Just this single symptom.

For a while now, I've been hearing random explorer clicking sounds coming from my computer. This happens about every other day, and only occurs shortly after I'm able to connect to the internet. The clicks tend to be clustered together, about 5 seconds apart, and there are about 5 clicks total.

As one might imagine, this can be quite annoying. Of course, I could take the easy way out and simply disable the clicking noise. But I want to get to the root of the problem and figure out what exactly is triggering these clicks. Could it be the result of an incomplete piece of malware?

In addition to the three required log files (Attach.txt, DDS.txt, and Ark.txt), I've also attached a log and and a screen shot from TCPView, which monitors all the processes that are using the TCP/IP protocol. (The screen shot only contains the explorer.exe entries, since that was the process triggering the clicking sound. Also, the log is older than the screen shot).

I've google'd it a bit after hearing it from a friend that random Windows sounds mean that I have some kind of malware/virus. Is this true? It kind of seems like a myth to me, but I'm not sure.

I need some help removing said virus, or fixing these sounds. (if it's not a virus, this thread will probably need to be moved)

I've scanned with MBAM, and no dice.

Random sounds have been playing in my background. For example, just an hour ago, I could hear a news broadcast followed by a Miley Cyrus song. I open my task manager and noticed a file that stood out named b.exe. I closed the file and the sounds stopped. I opened up to the root folder of b.exe and found it in my Temp folder. Also in it were files labeled A - F. Is this is a virus or spyware of some sort? I ran a full system scan as well as scanned the folder using Norton and found nothing. What are the files that are listed A - F? Need help please.

Hi IdiotSavant,

This is a case of an anti-lock spyware. It was on my rig too this morning same thing! World wide spyware launch! Try deleting the file and then restarting your system. The spyware is really bad for your rig if it is on too long!

My computer will occasionally play random sounds and audio. Like just 5 minutes ago i heard half a commerical about i dont even know what because it cuts off out of nowhere. I attached a log of all my running processes in case anyone can find something that does not belong. I know it is not any IM client because i know what they sound like and i dont have an IM client running anyway.

I just got new Logitech speakers, but while playing video games, the speaker makes random beeping noises and random times. I don't have this problem while using the built in speakers in the monitor or headphones, just with the new speakers that I bought. I don't think it is my cellphone since it is nowhere near my speakers and it beeps even when im not getting calls or text messages. Im not using the speakers anymore till someone can help me resolve this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Speakers making random sounds

How are these speakers hooked up to the computer? Right into the sound card audio out jack?

I am not exactly sure what interference would come across the speakers as a beep. Is beep the same as a car horn beep?

What is the model number of these Logitech speaker?

If they are powered by an AC power adapter, are you plugging that into a source that is also connected to a device that is causing stray RF interference?

I had a power outage last night and after turning on my PC I noticed that I had a remove hardware safely icon on my toolbar that wasnt there prior. It contains only my hard drives in the menu. Also, there was a very annoying USB disconnect sound then quickly a USB reconnect sound. This happens at random intervals of time and I dont have to be doing anything for them to happen. Ive downloaded the USBview and it did not detect any USB devices disconnecting or reconnecting. ive also disconnected all my USB devices from the computer and the sounds still occur. Ive noticed that when it occurs my PC lags. My device manager page is also refreshing every time the sounds occur. This is the most annoying problem I have ever had.

A:random USB disconnect/reconnect sounds

If you have a Vista disc, boot off of that and choose your Language and then choose Repair Your Computer.
If you don't have a disc, go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing system files.

I'm ok with computers, but I am having some issues. To anyone who posts a response: please answer in the simplest terms you can! I want to fix this the right way without doing anymore damage.

I have a relatively Toshiba Satellite laptop (I bought it in April) and run Windows Vista Basic - I also browse the internet with Firefox, if that makes any difference. Nearly a week ago I started getting messages saying "b.exe has stopped working". I have also seen "c.exe has stopped working" but that only happened once or twice and I haven't seen it since. I have also noticed that my laptop will make clicking sounds and then start playing random noises like interviews, music, etc. It almost sounds like someone has a YouTube playlist running in the background. I am also getting a lot of popups.
I use Trend Micro and I also downloaded CCleaner, which I try to use about once a week. I have done full system scans, run a disk clean, defragged and emptied my cache and nothing seems to work to get rid of the noises.
I downloaded Malwarebytes and am running a full system scan as we speak and so far it has found 3 infected objects, though I can't look at what they are yet (the scan is not finished).
I have been trying to research fixes to my problem, but a lot of what I read is harder for me to understand because I don't know computers too well. I don't want to download something else that will make my problem worse or delete somethin... Read more

Hello,

I am using Windows 7 and Firefox 9

Here is my problem:

Since a day ago I am experiencing random sounds, advertisements and more without any programs open.

I also have multiple instances of the iexplore.exe process running; shutting them down terminates the random sounds but they eventually return.

Since the problem manifested with the random sounds playing I also experience frequent Firefox crashes, something that haven't happened before to me.
AVG 2012 and MBAM find no infections but I am sure I am infected with some malicious software.
I have read all your rules and guidelines and I am ready for everything. I have access to a second computer which is (presumably) uninfected and I can use this one to access these forums should my system fail.

There is a weird virus on my computer that plays random sounds from the speaker at random intervals. Espically when I am using IE, and it is usually a chirping cricket like sound, but sometimes it can be other sounds. I have done online, spybot, avg, and ad-aware scans and none of them pick it up. I have searched google and seen people saying that it is a prefs, indt2, or weatherbug files causing this, but I have searched for all of those and no luck. I have run out of ideas so I hope you guys can help. Here is my HijackThis log. Thanks.

Hello all,

My Laptop has been randomly playing sounds/music/ads for the last few days. Everything from music, random noises (like beeps, and pots and pans banging together) and now ads - and the interesting thing is, they are AUSTRALIAN ads (I live in Australia)... It must know where I am, from my IP address I guess, and target the ads accordingly???

Anyway, I have failed to remove the problem. CA Trust VET antivirus, Ad-Aware Free and Prevx have all failed to help.....

Oh great - Now I am listening to a "Strepsils" ad, "giving me relief from a sore throat, any time, anywhere..." Great! If I ever caught the prick that wrote this one, they would need more than a Strepsil!!! (sorry guys - rant mode OFF).

Logs as requested are attached (I un-installed Daemon Tools, and uTorrent before running the logs)... I have access to an XP install disc.

According to the logs, perhaps an MBR issue? "Use: "mbr.exe -f" to fix."? Or perhaps use TDSSKILLER by Kaspersky? I will wait to hear from the experts!

Pez

So about a week ago, I upgraded to Windows 7 on my custom-built gaming rig (screams problems right there, I know). Since then, the audio has been stuttering horribly: skipping and buzzing and producing all manner of broken sounds, especially when doing anything that wants a bit more RAM than nothing.

Anyway, a couple days ago, I heard a random barking noise coming through my speakers. However, since this was an isolated incident and nothing came of it, I really thought nothing of it. But just yesterday while I was sitting on my computer, listening to music through iTunes and browsing the web in Chrome, the system hung for a second, before the sound of a cat meowing played through my speakers. I glanced at the system tray as an extra icon had appeared in that moment, but before I could get a good glimpse of it, my system shut down entirely.

In the sequential reboot, it asked if I wanted to boot into safe mode, which I did, running through Ccleaner (cleaning everything), Spybot s&d, and then doing a thorough scrub with AVG Free. None of these turned up anything worth writing home about: a few tracker cookies according to AVG and Spybot that were dispatched with haste (and somehow managed to get around my hosts file block). I also took the opportunity to wipe out Viewpoint Media Player (which had reinstalled itself from AIM 7 after my most recent upgrade). I figured this would probably at least fix the problem somewhat.

How wrong I was.

A:[SOLVED] Random Sounds Virus

Hi and welcome to TSF have you tried a fresh copy of your sound drivers

4 more replies

In the past three or four days i have been hearing "windows noises" (in a windows 7 64bit) while i'm using the internet explorers (IE, Chrome). I also found that facebook doesn't load the mini-images (like the faces on comments and so). I tought it was a temporary problem, didn't care about the sounds (the sounds are like the ones that goes when you browse folders in windows), but it have been three days, the sounds are still there, they are ramdom, and facebook is still the same, in different accounts.

I used Malwarebytes but nothing was found. I also ran Ccleaner and Regseeker. Everything is still the same.

I also had (past days, not now) a little pop-up of a Airline promotions (I have looking for flights last week...) in the lower right corner of Chrome.

Any Idea?

Thanks for the support.

I was told to post here, instead. So you don't have to read the other one:
For some reason, random Windows sounds have been playing such as logoff/logon and some others that I can't remember the names of.

I have Kaspersky Internet Security, and the scans have come up clean. I've also scanned with MBAM.
I would attach an HJT log, but the program is acting funny. It keeps saying there is no log file found, and it won't save a new one. I'm also getting a message that HJT was denied write access to my hosts file.

Hi,I have recently begun to experience some problems. I have seen people experiencing similar problems on these forums so thought this would be the best place to pose. These are the problems in a nutshell:- Every now and then the 'clicking' sound that you get when you click a link or enter a folder will keep repeating itself for about 7-8 clicks- I use Google Chrome, however, random pop-ups keep appearing in an Internet Explorer window- When using Google Chrome, certain features will randomly disable themselves (eg. Youtube videos will say I am missing a plug-in)- When searching on Google, certain links will navigate me to an ad page rather than the correct websiteI ran the scans as suggested in the Preparation Guide and these are the logs I have.

Internet explorer is also no longer working although Im not sure if this is linked.

Hi I am in a desperate need of help!!!

I have gotten the "random sounds virus" on my Windows Vista computer. It plays random things every now and then which I know is not good. I also have this thing with a X on my start-up bar that told me I had a virus, like an idiot I did one of their checks, which led to the random sounds. And now I get pop ups every few minutes telling me to check for virus's and the x will NOT go away. It says "Security System" has detected a virus even thought I know that its a virus its self. ALSO, my computer has slowed down so much that I can't even type everything without seeing it right away IT IS VERY BAD.

Today, these random sounds started playing from my computer. It sounds like a sound that you'd get when you have a new notification or an alert sound. I dont really know what it is, and theres no suspicious processes in the task manager. I checked all open websites and I dont have any alerts/notifications.

On seemingly random occasions (it might happen in 30 seconds, it might happen in 3 weeks), with out any explanation, my computer will play a random sound, sometimes the same random sound consecutively (one is a person laughing, another I think is the beginning of a linkin park song, and another one I cannot describe).

Sometimes it annoys me, and a bit of the time it doesn't. All I know is that when it bothers me, it pisses me off.

I have access to a full system image backup and regular backup on a 1TB external hard drive as well as a Windows 7 Upgrade Disc.

SOME OTHER POSSIBLY PERTINENT INFORMATION:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast 5, and Microsoft Security Essentials all report a "Clean" status. No strange internet traffic detected by Comodo Firewall.

"dllhost.exe" seems to run when it happens, and continue to run UNTIL I ROLL OVER IT IN TASK MANAGER. Weird...

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

If I remember this correctly, the problem started after I installed FFDshow on the Win7 RC where an FFDshow audio icon would appear when the sound was made. I have since then reformatted with the RTM and restored my data using Windows Easy Transfer and the sounds remain, regardless of FFDshow, and the icon no longer shows.

HiJackThis didn't seem to show anything suspicious, but I wouldn't know.

Other than this, the system seems utterly clean. No system slowdowns, no nothing. Just this sin... Read more

Hi ajritter3, welcome to TSF.

I need to see a GMER log before we can begin. Please do the following.

First, gmer will run a short, initial scan.
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.

Click the image to enlarge it

In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are UNCHECKED ...IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it to your next reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

Hi there!

I have a problem with my windows xp pc and iexplore.exe.

7 months ago i thought this problem was fixed but now i get random typing noise and the sound lower itself down withouot noticing.

Before i had some very strange adds but when i looked on the task manager iexplore.exe was popping up. I am using firefox mostly and i never used internet explorer on this machine.

I downloaded ZoneAlarm and blocked the process iexplore.exe for a while because malwarebytes and other spyware/virus software didn't find anything. It stood steady for 7 months until it started to appear again.

Random typing noises, like those on the keyboard, main sound cut, and on the task manager iexplore.exe pops up again! i can delete it all i want it just comes back...please help me!
