    ok.. this has become one of the most bothersome things, as some of you know, i have been posting about random shutoffs. Even though thats the most annoying thing, i thought before my new powersupply gets in, i would try to get this fixed...

    this ONLY happens when im playing counterstrike... seriously ONLY...

    when im in a game, anywhere from 5 seconds - 1 hour into it.. a popup ad will appear ... making me restart the game to get my sound back.. very annoying... here is the info..

    it comes from the process "csrss.exe" (which cannot be ended, its a critical process for the system), also to note, nothing is running in the background.

    ive ran spybot / virus scan many times... the weird thing about these ads is they only come while playing Counterstrike...

    any ideas ???
