    OK... First off, I can't think of a more subtle title ._.
    A few months ago we encountered a mysterious taskbar programme called *HeatSeek*. As most of you know, this is an adult browser. We don't know why it popped up, as no one had installed it. Then, about a month later, something else called BlogSpot popped up. We have no idea what this is o_O
    Now, three months later, COMPLETELY RANDOM porn sounds come through the speakers. We're like "wtf o_0" and close everything out, but they don't stop! Then, weirdest of all, they go from English to German ._.
    Basically, we're asking: WTF is going on? And how do we stop it? Nothing like that has been installed and we don't watch porn >_>
    Thanks for the help :D

    The General Security forum is only for general questions regarding security software and things of that nature but not for actually removing malware as we have qualified helpers who are the only members who are authorized to assist with those matters. You can easily identify them as they have either a gold or blue shield beside their usernames. Please refer to this excerpt from the rules:

    I'm going to close this thread and ask you to repost in the Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs forum for the proper assistance.
