Computer playing random audio automatically

Unread postby colorado5591 » March 17th, 2009, 5:56 am

Short back story, started on one of our 3 comps a few weeks ago. One of my husbands computers on our home network started playing audio files on its own even with IE and Firefox "closed".
Opening task manager revealed a hidden IE or Firefox running. Kill the Process, it stops but hours later or the next day it would do the same thing. It sounds like movie clips not ads or commercials.
Fast Forward to my problem. My laptop has started doing it also. First time tonight. I think it may have invaded me over the network as I was not on any odd site and had not downloaded anything. I was admin logged into my website, building a page. I killed Firefox and it stopped, like an idiot, I did not even think to see if his PC was also playing it. :oops: What is with all the (file missing) at the end of the string? :x

Thank you for listening, here is my HJT Log

Hi ,

I see from your HJT log that you're using a 64 bit Vista Operating System.

Unfortunately the tools we use to analyse and remove infection do not work properly on that Operating System, and their results can not be relied upon. Because of this it is almost impossible for us to correctly diagnose any problems, and the fixes we might offer could potentially do as much damage to your computer as any infection you might have.

Because of this, we do not at this time offer support for 64 bit operating systems.

Sorry we can't be of help to you.
