Do u have antivirus installed?
do u have a third party firewall?
what windows version does your system has?
install malwrebytes & run a quick scan from http://download.cnet.com/3001-8022_4...rt=dl-10804572
install spybot & run from http://download.cnet.com/3001-8022_4...40d0f973429a26
install & run hijackthis from http://download.cnet.com/3001-20_4-1...4a4312d5dd799b
attach hijackthis, & malwarebytes logs with your next reply ( you have to click the go advanced button to do attachments)

In Vista, when one closes Windows Media player 11 window, sometimes it hides and runs as a background process, still running the sound track.

all you have to do is open task manager and end the process named "wmplayer.exe".

if the problem still persists, you may need a firewall. I recommend kaspersky antivirus 8. it is highly efficient in removing any virus/ adware/ malware/ trojan activity.

you couldn't be more off point than this i guess. the user talking about ads as advertisments sound the once you get from a website running pal ads.
if you have that Windows media player issue happening at your computer vivekair, then u need to check it out. but it's not the norm to do task manager to close WMP.

you mean Vista 64bit OS!!!
go ahead & reboot
also delete all temp files from systems by typing %temp%. that should open a folder with some files, please delete all
also delete internet temporary files from tools, internet options, browsing history delete, delete all, select the radio option for deleting offline files & click OK.

I'm looking at your log, u have too many tool bars installed, please remove all (maybe leave the google tool bar)
do u use AOL? if not please uninstall all AOL versions.
remove Advanced Registry Optimizer
reinstall the latest audio drivers (it seems like missing a .dll processing file

I'm investigating the following entries in your log

Code:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [qbuzwadleavrkfn] C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32.exe /s "C:\Windows\system32\gfgxnenzab.dll"

To update the drivers open the Device Manager look for your "Sound, video and game controllers" double click it, than right click on your audio device and click on the "Update Driver Software" if there is more than one audio device update them all.
