    Well, havn't needed ya'll in a while, but i've got a wierd bug in my o'l desktop frankenstien HP thats closed me down...help! (again). Running XP pro w/ Outlook & all rec. MS upgrades. Running (paid version) Webroot Spysweeper & MS OneCare.

    The other day I noticed that my whole system was really slowing down online & getting a few of the "Sorry , window must shut down" pop ups. then out of nowhere the audio(only) starts playing various music and sound bites from online talk shows. Even when I turn outlook off the vocals continue untill it stops on it's own or I shut down the comp.. So I know it's "virus time" & do all the scans/repairs w/ above software. No change. So I attempt to contact you guys & .... yep- ALL my online anti malware sites are blocked.(using a laptop to send this).:eek:
    So in desperation I go for a system restore, and it's not working either( gets to the "searching restore point, this may take a moment " page & then locks up. My MS onecare had detected the GAO-or something similar-virus that they said would block security sites & give other symptoms that i'de had. Onecare "supposedly"... "fixed" it but apparently not. Here's the HJT log.Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1

    And.... you may want to consider that this virus BLOCKS THIS SITE and others like it. So you may not be hearing a lot about it?
