IE 9 Running invisible audio ads; and running very slow

Q: IE 9 Running invisible audio ads; and running very slow

I am brand new to the forum.

I am running IE 8 on a Windows 7 Professional system.

IE started running invisible audio ads in the background today.

Eventually it seems IE builds up to a critical mass of memory usage and it stalls and i have to restart it.

I can't find any processes in Task manager to kill that stops the ads other than IE itself.

Can anyone assist?

Thanks

Hello Everyone,
 
I've been scanning the forum and this seems like it's been dealt with before but I can't for the life of me figure it out.  When I Open Google Chrome, usually within a minute or two, a bunch of cases of internet explorer open up in the background.  You can't see them unless looking at task manager.  They start as blank pages then play audio Adds.  As of now I ran an AVG scan and it found nothing.  .  I downloaded DDS and ran the scans.  I have the logs but I'm not sure how to attach them in the proper way.  I'm currently running a malware bytes scan and will update with results from that in the morning. (Looking through other threads it seems to rarely fix it).  I also tried to do a quick system restore.  To a restore point about a week ago and it went through the process normally but then came up after going through the reboot of the restore saying the restore failed, could not rewrite one of the files.  I went to try again and that restore point was gone and replaced with one from only 10 minutes ago.  At any rate when I look at the task list processes window, I see about 5 processes for IE and if I end one or more of them they almost instantly repopulate.
 
I'm worried about this and need to get this computer back to proper running shape as I use it for anything.  I have no idea where this virus has come from as I can't think of anything strange I've downloaded ... Read more

Our computer is a Dell Dimension E510 with Windows XP. We are experiencing some mysterious symptoms that began about a month ago. They were not associated with any recent or emails we received (that we know of), and our PC-Cillin and spyware programs have not uncovered any threats. We've de-fragmented our computer and cleared our temporary internet files. Nothing seems to help. The symptoms are:
1. Certain programs run very slowly, including Word.
2. Emails are very difficult to send. Sometimes we must restart the computer to get them to send.
3. Our Outlook says we have a message in our Outbox that keeps causing a send-receive error, yet when we look in the Outbox, there is nothing there! The error reads, "Task 'incoming.yahoo.verizon.net - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).' "
Our email provider, Verizon, has not resolved the problem so far.

The results from our DDS scan are:

First off, as much as I'd like to call myself a techie, I don't really know what I'm doing most of the time. I really don't have any clue what's going on with my laptop so I'll just lay out the facts and symptoms, and hope that its something I can fix myself.I have a Dell Inspiron b120 notebook (crappy...I know but it was free) running Windows XP. Other than being a little slow, it worked great until recently. Then AVG Anti-virus quaritined the "gaelicum.exe" virus a couple of weeks ago, which I deleted. I then ran the "vcleaner.exe" to make sure that it was completely gone. Vcleaner showed no evidence of the gaelicum virus or anything else.And then about a week ago it started having the following symptoms:-stuttering sound (I use this computer for music production so this is a big problem)-takes an extremely long time to start-up or restart-error message "Low Virtual Memory, increasing virtual memory"We ran AVG Anti-Virus and Ewido Anti-Spyware again (found nothing). I started keeping an eye on my processes to see if there was anything odd in the virtual memory column that might be a memory leak. But I wasn't entirely sure what was "normal" to begin with. Here's a screenshot of my processes. Seems like a lot to me considering that Firefox is the only thing running at the time. The VM numbers stayed pretty much the same for the amount of time that I was observing them.But in the last couple of days... Read more

A:Low Virtual Mem., Audio Stuttering, Running Slow...

Hello and welcome,Firstly remove as many programs as you can.secondly, go to start then run and type in msconfig click on the startup tab and remove the ticks to some of the entries (google entries before applying) Next go to start run then type services.msc scroll down the list and turn off the ones you don't need.then to increase the virtual memory, right click on my computer and select properties. then go to the advanced tab and select settings under the performance part. click advanced and go down to the bottom of the window and click change under virtual memory. it is probably set on system managed size if so you can click custom size and enter a number between 2 and 4096. it should typically be three times your Ram.A little tip for improving performance is to bring up the task manager and find the process that you are using say wmplayer for media player and right click on the process and set the priority to avove normalHope this helps

For reasons unknown to me, my boot has noticeably slowed down, and when I reach the desktop, the volume icon in the system tray has a red x on it, indicating the audio service is not running. Because these two issues arose simultaneously, I can't help but think they must be related.

This is a new problem on my Windows 8.1 Pro x64 installation.

My boot drive is an SSD, and Windows 8.1 was always very fast to load. It used to only be 2-3 seconds on the 'Welcome' screen before the desktop. Now it takes more like 10 to 15 seconds on the 'Welcome' screen before reaching the desktop. That's not a huge problem in itself, but apparently symptomatic of something not quite right, and it coincided with the "audio service is not running" problem.

I can't think of any changes I made to my configuration, certainly nothing related to the Windows Audio service.

Another odd thing is: if I go into Services, it clearly shows Windows Audio actually is running (and set to Automatic startup). If I select Restart the service, it does and the volume icon then acknowledges it. While that solves the volume issue until the next time I boot, it obviously doesn't fix the underlying problem.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose and resolve this issue? Thanks!

Try clean boot and see if the issue still persist.

Greetings! My first post...
About a week ago, I found an old CD ROM (apparently from 10 years ago). I installed it to see what it would do. I'm pretty sure that's when the problems started. Since then I have removed this program and the problems still exist.

Problems: PC running slow/ ALL audio, video files, plus CD's and DVD's are skipping or stuttering / Bootup takes twice as long as before/ ccApp always shows up as an error when turning off or logging off (very annoying program)

Steps I have taken: Ran Norton Antivirus - full scan (nothing)/ Ran Windows Defender for spyware (Found 8 programs - cleaned those)/ Ran registry fix program (many problems fixed) / Ran Error Nuker (fixed many problems) / Ran Check-It Diagnostics (found no errors)/ Checked for HyperThreading (not an option on this system)

I'll admit I have a lot of crap on this computer I can do without, but now I'm afraid to remove any other programs. Let me know what you need me to do to help you out. Please help!! Thanks!

Hey, im currently using a Eisystems laptop its not the best laptop in the world but ive had few problems with it over the past year (apart from issues with computer games because of the terrible Intel graphics card built onto the motherboard). Recently it froze up big time and the next time i turned it on it was running ridiculusly slow like it took a good 25min to get rom the login process to my desktop, also i noticed the sound worked wen i first turn the laptop on but once it finished loading up all the bits and bobs the Audio driver randomly dissapears, it will not play any video or audio content as apparently "no audio device is installed" ive tried going into the BIOS and checking to see everything looks okay and it does and i virus checked my computer it found two viruses but they seemed harmless and are now gone also everytime i open device manager it doesnt show anything its literally a blank window, i have a recovery disc on hand if i need it but i was wondering if there is anything less drastic i could do to remedy these problems, as its becvoming more and more hard work to complete my university work as it taking forever to do anything

please help

Here are my basic computer specs:
Microsoft Windows XP [Home Edition]
Version 2002, Service Pack 2
VAIO Computer w/ Intel Pentium M processor 1.73 GHz; 1.00 BG of RAM
Harddrive currently has 22 GB of free space

And my basic problem is that I notice a major lag whenever I try to play any audio or video. The rest of the programs are usually fine, although they sometimes run slow when starting up, or at random moments. It's obvious right away - as soon as i turn on my computer and windows starts up, that tone that the computer plays is very slow and doesn't play through smoothly... kinda skips and glitches out. My start up time is also rather on the slow side. I can play video ok, but it tends to have freezing moments and the audio gets skippy and jumbled and just slows. Depending on what my CPU is 'supposedly' doing the the background, the file can run fine, but then start to slow for a few moments, then catch itself and resume running smoothly again. I notice it is worst with itunes. I tried starting up my pc, not running any programs (once windows was all loaded up and ready) except itunes, then tried to play a song. Boy... was the response time awful. Couldn't even play one song through without the skipping and hesitation. This is just really bothering me.

You can first try this:
http://www.howtogeek.com/74523/how-to-disable-startup-programs-in-windows/
 
Then you can try removing all the junk files on it using CCleaner or BleachBit or something similar. If that doesn't help, I would recommend dual booting this PC with Ubuntu 14.04. I actually published a tutorial on doing that here:
http://69.107.93.24/Blog/52015/
 
You could then use that as your primary OS.

Recently my computer has started booting up very slowly, and after it boots up the CPU or the fan (not sure which) stayed revved up. If I check the task manager idle system process is running at 98-99% all the time. I know this is a measure of how often the CPU is idle, but I don't recall it always being so high.

If I start the task manager as soon as my computer lets me when I boot up all my CPU is going to idle system process for some reason, instead of booting things up.

Its been awhile, but I seem to recall that some problems can make it look like idle process time when in reality something else is actually wrong.

I get random lag when I open a program. Firefox for example, will load just fine, but then I try to click something and the computer momentarily freezes. Its not just Firefox though, it happens when I open up "My Documents" or Pidgin or anything.

I ran Microsoft Security Essentials, Malware Bytes, and Spybot S&D, all of them came back clean.

I would post stuff from Belarc Advisor here, but it keeps hanging on the "Checking local network of this computer." part at 54%.

I'm not sure where to go from here. :(

Ok, for the past few weeks, I had been getting a message that said a resource was missing, but I stupidly never wrote down what specifically was gone. It said that it could not open the Dell Dock because of it and windows explorer was running slow at times and restarting periodically. It did this for about three weeks, then, two nights ago, the computer froze, so I reset it, and it started on the green bar then black screen loop.

I tried running it in safe mode, no dice, and all other alternate boot options. It would hang up each time. Finally, I was able to get the system restore wizard up, this was earlier today, and reset the system to how it was 4 days ago. It actually opened Vista, but in low res mode and everything is painfully slow, except for the internet, which runs at normalish speeds.

Are there any possible causes or solutions for this?

I have a Dell Inspiron 530, and Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

Hey guys, I am running Vista on an AMD Phenom X4 9150e with 4gb ram. My hard drive is constantly running and chugging away pretty good too, reading rather than writing i believe. My cpu and memory usage are quite high and my system is running relatively slow for doing simple things like opening a browser. I have attached a screenshot of the system resource monitor with basically nothing running but hijack this and a browser. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have run scans with malware bytes and adaware, as well as AVG which all come up clean.

I have installed superanti spyware and that found some stuff to delete, Im quite computer illiterate, the internet is running at about 4 or 5 for speed and it should be 8 according the internet provider, they said everything is fine from their end, however I may have programs running on the computer that shouldnt be and are slowing it down, Im not sure if this is a spyware issue, virus, program not needed?

Toshiba Satellite Window 7

Ok. so the past couple of weeks my laptop has been running incredibly bad.. First Problem arise when I put my laptop to sleep. It was working when it was brand new, no problems whatsoever. But lately every time i would put my laptop to sleep, it would crash after been woken up. By crash i mean, everything freezes, nothing moves, cursors frozen, nothing.... So i stopped putting it to sleep.

2nd problem was after the sleep problem, Whenever i enter a some sites, my laptop completely freezes. Eg. (i searched methane on Google the other day for homework and my laptop completely froze, had to forcefully shut it down. It wasn't just the internet browser, it was my laptop as well, nothing was functioning. Its not a one time thing because every time i search up methane it crashes .. ) Basically i would just stop searching up stuff...

3rd Problem Arrived today, Laptop would take extremely long to start up. Like 10-15mins to start up. This problem just showed up today, and i have no idea whats wrong!!

4th problem is minor, my audio service is not running. This problem came up at the same time as the long start up problem. The sound still works but i can't see the icon on the bottom right corner on my screen.

SOLUTIONS
- I've tried scanning computer with viruses, couldn't find any?
- I've tried clearing cookies and cache, doesn't work..
(Laptop freezes no matter what browser i'm using)

I'm not really good with computers to I don't know whats wrong at ... Read more

I'm running XP SP 3, 3 gigs ram, 100 gig free hard disk space.

Recently when I click on Paint Shop Pro2 Icon the hour glass comes up for several moments ( like it's loading ) then nothing. Several clicks and nothing.

Yesterday this symptom started happening to several programs, they will not load. Hour glass then nothing.

Then I found that yes they are loading, invisibly, as a Process and not as an application.

In the windows Task Manager instead of being listed in applications they are under processes, an iteration for every click.

I've removed and reloaded PSP twice.

I've run Norton 360, AdAware, SpyBot, Anti-MalWare

Hello,
 
My problem is the following: after a boot up, my laptop can find itself in two states, seemingly at random.
- runs fine: the laptop runs as it always did, no slowdown or anything.
- runs slowly: as the name implies, every program runs slowly, from Firefox to video games (offline, so it's not just an internet connection issue).
As far as I can tell, which state the computer will settle in is set at boot up or wake up from hibernation mode. I've never seen my laptop go from "runs fine" to "runs slowly" while I was using it, even after running all day long. Same way, if it's in the "runs slowly" state it's noticeable as soon as I launch any program just after boot up, and it doesn't get better or worse after using it all day .
Another symptom I noticed recently is that as soon as I launch a game while in the "runs fine" state, I can hear both the CPU fan (shortly) and GPU fan (continuously) kick up a few gears, which I take to mean both CPU and GPU are put to use. This has always been the laptop's behaviour, even before this problem appeared. However, when playing a game while in the "runs slowly" state, the CPU fan will remain quiet and the GPU fan will only go a bit faster from time to time before returning to quiet speed. It seems as if the whole computer gets lazy and don't want to put any effort.
I first took notice of this whole behaviour around the end of March/beginning of April of this year, though in retrospect the "runs slowly" state may have shown up on... Read more

Hi all.

I've caught the "Internet-Explorer-running-in-the-background-with-phantom-voice-commercials" virus. I've seen by searches that it's quite a common problem.

Essentially, I hear voices for ads (Pine-O-Clean, Razors, and other things, along with random, jarring sound-effects sometimes.) and cannot see where they're coming from. They're linked to Internet Explorer, because when I kill it in task manager the voices stop. I also get the occasional IE popup.

Thanks in advance, and I hope I've done everything right here.

Hello, recently I have noticed over the past month my laptop begin to run slower and slower. It is now so slow and lagging to the point just surfing web pages takes quite a long time both for the browser to respond and for the page to load. I have also noticed that the fan is running extremely loud on the laptop. I have ran an avira anti virus scan but it found nothing.

I run Windows 8.1 64 bit OS.
My laptop is an HP Pavillion and is only a little over a year old.

Hi,

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 510m with Windows Xp ....

It is about 5 or 6 yrs old and quite well used..

Unfortunately it is not running very well lately...

and it is slow at loading webpages at times...

but in particular on websites like yahoo..

I am lately having problems sending emails...

and running videos say on youtube in particular if I have
say more than 3 or 4 webpages open...
Often it will not play video if I have been using the computer
for sometime...

I even have problems posting on even on here....or other forums..
I often have to copy the wording ,open another page and paste.
and post on the 2nd page...to send a post..

Im not sure if it may be my wifi...or my computer....
although wifi appears connected.

Sometimes my computer crashes when using Adobe flash..

I have ran several Antivirus and spyware malware programs over the last few months..
such as Trend Micro...and Avira, Malwarebytes and Spybot...

My Disc is quite full..so this may be one of the reasons why I am having problems...
BUT I have had it almost full in the not too distant past and it had ran reasonably OK..
and I did not have the problems with yahoo or sending emails from yahoo...

sometimes the computer just freezes up completely..and I cannot turn it off as usual..
so I have to switch it off by unplugging it..

It runs reasonable if I only have a few webpages open..and usually after I have reloaded it.

My computer seems to be running fine but slower than usual plus the fan I have got always seems to be running at Maximum (which is quite loud).

It used to slow down when not much was running which makes me wonder whether something is running that shouldn't which is taking up a lot of my resources. I have Ran CCleaner and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware come out clean so maybe its nothing.

A:computer running to slow, to many nothing programs running

Hello and Welcome to TSF

I see nothing malicous in your HJT log but I see you have P2P software installed on your machine (Morpheus). We are not here to pass judgment on file-sharing as a concept. However, we will warn you that engaging in this activity and having this kind of software installed on your machine will always make you more susceptible to infections.


There are some processes that you do not need running at startup, you can click Start/Run and type in msconfig. Click the start-up tab, here is where you will find everything that is running at start-up and also remove from startup.

Please create a restore point before attempting to stop any processes from running for safety reasons

A:Fans running hi, system running slow

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Upgrading Java:

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7.
Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
Click the "Download" button to the right.
Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
Click on Continue.
Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

Looks fine other than missing an anti-virus program.

While playing an online full-screen game, with no other active programs running, internet explorer invisibly opens and forces whatever else I was doing to minimize. On checking task manager, iexplorer.exe and another program titled "8Ok4qQGr.exe" are running. I searched the latter of the two and it's in the System32 folder. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware has removed it several times, claiming it as a trojan, but it reappears in hours. Please assist, thank you.

Hello thanx in advance,Fricken kid downloaded something off Bit torrent and now I am getting all kinds of iexplore.exe running invisible and playing advertisements for products and stuff.

Then last night it started with the Windows XP 2010 Anti-virus bogus malware program pop ups. Windows Defender keeps coming up stating that it is seeing a bogus process and asks me to accept or deny this process:Resources:file:C:\WINDOWS\tasks\At##.jobfile:c:\program files\internet explorer\wmpscfgs.exeI have tried to delete wmpscfgs.exe and it keeps re-adding it self.

I have done several scans with AVG, SB S&D, Malewarebytes. it has found some stuff to where the Email scanner and the XP 2010 antivirus stuff has stopped but I still show that wmpscfgs.exe there and the invisible IE windows running with advertisements playing over speakers.

As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your t...

Hello All!!

I have seen similar threads here but my problem is slightly different.
I have ASUS P4S8X-MX which have built in audio of Realtek AC'97 .
I am using Windows XP SP2 for quite a time and everything was fine unless i tried to install an updated driver for my sound. After updating, i got Code 10 error , device cannot start.
I uninstalled the drivers, Restart my PC and then installed my previous version of drivers.
Everything was fine and i can see volume icon in task bar. But when i tried playing an audio file there wasn't any sound. I clicked volume icon to raise it but it was disabled.
I double click it to open Mixer .. there are only 3 options (normally it use to have lot ..wave,speaker,etc..) Now it has only Wave , SW Synth, CD Player.. and No recording device.

I did try re-installing the drivers again and again but no LUCK..

I tried using Drivers Sweeper to remove the tracks .. doing that in Safe Mode and then again Installed Old drivers. It all go well but in the end its same situation with sound disabled.

I don't want to reinstall my Windows , is there any way to fix it ?

One thing i noticed is every time I install drivers the sound manager shows up at task bar but in moments it disappears while the soundman.exe is running in Processes and I can't find it in Control Panel as well (where it use to be) .


Its been 8 hours since I am struggling with that. But No LUCK!

Hi muazzam

Is best to upgrade to SP3 (if only because MS has dropped support for SP2) but can start, for now, looking at your problem while you continue running with SP2

Let's start with these initial steps
1) List any Problem Devices

Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
2) Generate and attach a DirectX report

click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
Notice progress in lower left window corner
When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the report. (If you don't see icon you may need to first click Go Advanced)
3) If there were no Problem Devices (step 1 above) then also check on your Windows Audio service if Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic

I'll have a look and we can take it from there

I have an Acer Aspire Laptop 57362-4790 running Win 7 with all the latest updates. Audio is an Intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI, and Realteck HDMI.

Because I had no headphone output with the computer connected to my TV via the HDMI out I ran the Windows audio trouble shooter. I got a messaage "non standard audio detected" and Windows did something. Now my headphone jack works, but I have no audio on the TV from the HDMI connection.

I've checked both the Intel and Realtime audio controlers and gotten the message, "Device working properly."

I've searched both Intel and Realtime for new drivers and gotten the message, "Best driver already installed."

Opening sound, clicking on playback, clicking on configure, selecting speaker and clicking on test gives test tones out of both the left and right speakers on the TV. Going back to the web, still no sound!

Does anyone have any idea what Windows did and more importantly how do I undo it and get sound back on the TV through the HDMI connection?

Thanks for looking at this story, and any help you can give.

A:No HDMI audio after running Win 7 audio trouble shooter

Use the System Restore function and restore the PC back to a date PRIOR to whatever you did. That should return it to how it was configured. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. System Restore will not delete any user data or emails.

There are audio ads playing in the background of my computer with no way to find or shut them off. My A/V and spyware applications won't run or install. Google searches redirect to some ad site (Coupon Mountain?). Oh, and after about 10 minutes or so, the computer freezes and the only way around is a hard restart. There may be more symptoms, but that's just what I've seen in the past few hours.

Pretty sure this is stemming from my girlfriend's fervent passion for Limewire.

So about a month ago my sound crashed and stopped working on my Advent netbook laptop.
There is a red X and if I click on the sound icon then the trouble shooter automatically starts and gives me the message 'one or more audio service isn't running.'

On other forums I have read that if you go onto the device manager and disable and then enable the realtek sound manager then the sound should come back. This hasn't worked for me .

I'm not very computer savvy so if you have any suggestions for me could you please explain them in a way that I would understand because I'm trying to fix it on my own without having to pay.

Hi ZZCheetahZZ,
 
Regarding the "The Audio service is not running" issue, please first try start the Windows Audio service by the steps below:
 
1. Click the Start Button, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Search Bar and press Enter to start Services.
2. In the right pane, please check whether the Windows Audio service is started.
3. If not, please double click the service. In the tab "General ", make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic". Then please click the button "Start" under "Service Status" to start this service.
 
If the service cannot be started, please also check the following services:
 

Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Multimedia Class Scheduler
Windows Audio Endpoint Builder

 
Also, you can run audio Troubleshooter by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Troubleshooting -> Troubleshooting audio playback -> Follow the wizard to complete the troubleshoot.
 
If the issue persists, please also test the issue in Clean Boot. If the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.
 
Hope this helps.

Hi there. Since I turned my laptop on from hibernate/sleep I have had a sound problem. I have a RED X marked on the "speakers/audio" icon on the taskbar. All my drivers / updates are up to date. I am using the Windows audio drivers as the Dell IDT ones are rubbish.

I have researched this via google...used all the so called solutions/fixes...but none of them work.

I used this:-

A high definition audio device may no longer work after you resume Windows Vista from hibernation or from sleep
It says the update is not relevant for me.

Tried uninstalling & reinstalling drivers... multiple restarts...still does not work..

Also booted via Vista disc(Dell provided)...it used startup fix....this did not work.

The above shows the services do not work. Even right clicking trying to start / restart it does not work...I get this error:-

I've even tried to get copies of those files via another Vista pc..but it says I cannot replace/delete files as I don't have priviledge...even though I am an ADMIN..

Furthermore sfc /scannow does not work

Whats going wrong here guys? I simply started up from a hibernation to find this error...& after 12 hours is really stressing me out now.. I do not want to reinstall Vista & loose my data...that would be my last resort (I'd back up data first)...

Starting early this morning I started having audio spam advertising on my computer. I hear unwanted commercial ads intermittently with no way to stop them other than turning the sound off on my computer. I've determined through Task Manager that an instance of iexplore.exe is opening without my permission. Manually ending the process only solves the issue for less than 60 seconds before another instance of iexplore.exe opens. Also - just being detailed - for no apparent reason sometimes the "Wave" part of volume control resets itself down to zero, stopping me from hearing the ads. I have seen other posts about similar symptoms through Google searches, including on this board, so apparently others have had this issue as well.

I have run Spybot, AVG scans, HijackThis!, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - no dice on any of them. Logs from DDS and GMER follow:

Hello All,        My desktop runs Windows 7 OS. I've just recently experienced audio ads in the background without any apps open to play them. I run Trend Micro as my anti-virus. After several attempts to download their fix app, the very same app, (Trend Micro), that is supposed to be helping me is stopping me from downloading fixes. It informs me that they all have viruses.  It's me again replying to my own post, FYI. Audio ads have not stopped running. I'd like to find out how to put a stop to it!Thanks.

After many hours searching on google, and discovering more problems, I'm forced to plead ignorance/incompetence and request some help.

Heres the problem (I don't know where it stemmed from):

I turned on the computer one day to find the audio had stopped working. The audio symbol in the corner by the clock has a red circular 'X', and when I hover the mouse over it a pop up reads, 'The audio service is not running'.

When I right click the audio symbol the following options appear:

-open volume mixer (greyed out)
-playback devices
-recording devices
-sounds

When I click on 'sounds' it takes me to the sound menu which states under the tab 'playback devices' that there are no audio devices installed.

Also, when I go to device manager it is completly empty. I've looked at other forums and both problems appear to stem from Plug and Play issues.

However, when I go to Administrative Services there is no 'Plug and Play' option anywhere.

I've tried reinstalling the audio drivers from the HP/Compaq websites to no avail.


I just don't know what to do.

I have a Compaq Presario c700.

Please help!

Hello, i installed windows 8 CP a few days back and i have been facing quite a few problems. The main one being the audio service not working. I tried a lot of solutions that have been given on the internet but its to no avail. When i try to start the windows audio service from the services screen, it gives me the following error:

I have no idea what this means. So kindly help me out with this.

My second problem is there is no dvd drive shown in the my computer tab. I tried mapping the device but was not able to. I tried upper filter and lower filters method and restarted the pc only to find them both no longer there.

It would be of great help if someone provides a solution for the above problems.

A:Audio service not running

Hello,

I would not be surprised if there is a problem with your audio driver which is causing that.

You can otherwise check that the service is set to Log On as the Local Service account. The service does not need to have the box checked to interact with the desktop.

Follow the advice here:

Configure How a Service Is Started

If you still have issues, it would be best to create a new account with Administrator privileges on the machine and log into it. Test that account out and see if the audio service start well.

Hiyya Jarrod and welcome Mate I am a bit confused too what exactly do you mean by your audio service?

In the meantime I found this via a Google - take a look at 714's answer.

In case you want to find that type msconfig in the Start window and it will come up as a small blue window - run as admin (I always right click and add to start menu for quick access) in this screen you can also set what you wnat to boot - see the tutorilal by Brink on optimising windows 7

I am the IT person at this one company and one of the employees got a virus or something on his laptop - an audio ad keeps running - at first there were pop ups as well but those seem to have gone away. I have done the following: ran repeatedly spybot search and destroy and adaware. Also ran AVG Antivirus. I was able to get rid of the visual pop ups but not the audio
So now I have the machine running in selective mode - tried not running startup but that didn't stop it - so now I'm at a standstill with what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Audio Popup keeps running

Hi dfigel,

Have you tried Malware Bytes and Super Antispyware? These pick up some things other software doesn't catch.
Also, it would be useful to do one of the online scans, like BitDefender, Panda or McAfee Stinger. It's useful to install and run CCleaner before running the online scans so the logs don't end up being so large.

I started having this problem after I deleted the Norton 360 Anti Virus Program! I noticed that the audio ads are using an application shown in the Volume Mixer as 1560. If you change or mute 1560 it will affect the audio ads running in the background! This also may have something to do with symcuw.exe because after halting symcuw.exe the audio ads stopped............. The program 1560.exe is hidden in my users\appdata directory and can't be deleted. How can I resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I checked many websites & forums to solution for my problem before posting the question here. A week back my Computer's Audio started giving me problems. At first the audio used to stop suddenly during normal working & wouldn't return unless I restart my system. So I tried reinstalling my sound driver & was successful in doing that. But now I see an "X" mark near the Sound Icon on my task bar & says "Audio Service is not running" Here are the trouble shooting I did:

Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Services

Plug & Play is ON & Automatic

Multimedia is ON & Automatic

Windows Audio Endpoint Builder is stopped

Windows Audio is stopped.

I tried starting the Windows audio Endpoint Builder & the following error msg appears:

"windows could not start the windows audio endpoint builder service on local computer"

"Error 0x80070002: The system cannot find the file specified"

Under path for executable, I saw that it is looking for a file named svchost.exe.

File seems to be present at the location though nothing seem to happen when I try double clicking it.

Please help in resolving this issue. Since I purchased an HP Laptop with Windows Vista, they didnt give me a separate Vista DVD to try & reinstall it all over again.

This is kind of weird. Down by the sound icon says "Audio Service is not running".



I have sound with audio files such as MP3 and sound when I play a video file.


I know I am using onboard sound, and in the Device Manager, it says "High Definition Audio Device". There are NO indications that all drivers are not working.

Where I don't have sound is with a microphone. I can NOT record sound with a microphone and have tried my mic on another pc and it works.

I would like some help getting the microphone working and be able to record from it.

Thank you

I'm aware that there was a thread about this before, but reading it didn't solve my problem. After restarting my computer, I found that my audio service would not start. After investigating the services, I found that the Multimedia Class Scheduler service wouldn't start because of "Error 2 file not found". After researching, I found that a possible solution would be to replace my audiosrv.dll.
After doing that and restarting my computer, the Audio Endpoint Builder service did not start and under the description it read, "Failed To Read Description. Error Code: 1813". I could not find any information about this specific error so I felt my only option was to go to command prompt and type "sfc /scannow" for a system scan. It said that some files are corrupted but it could not do anything about it. The most relevant information I could find was this particular paragraph

I started up my computer a couple days ago to find that my sound wasn't working at all. When I hovered over the volume icon it says The Audio Service is not running and when I try to have Windows 7 troubleshoot, it says one or more audio service isn't running and that the problem has not been fixed.

I've gone into my services folder and looked at Windows Audio, Windows Audio Endpoint Builder, Multimedia Class Scheduler, and Plug and Play. All of them are set to start automatically, but none of them are started. When I try to manually start them I get the error message the "Windows could not start the service on Local Computer. Error 193: 0xc1." for every service.

I've gone through most of the threads on here that have similar problems, and nothing on there has helped so far. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers to no avail. When I go to manage audio devices, I get a message that says "the computer cannot play audio because the Windows Audio Service is not enabled. Would you like to enable it?" I choose yes and it brings me to the sound menu that should allow me to enable it, but that menu says that I have no audio device installed.

I'm not sure what else I can/need to do. Help!

I'm running windows 7 and my performance has become very slow and now I'm getting ads playing in the background when I boot in normal mode. Recently, I had received a bsod saying something about kernel data but can't remember exactly and system functioned normally after up until this new problem.

I have run hijackthis and combofix in safe mode and here are the resulting logs:
