    So recently, I downloaded the new version of Adobe Flashplayer and now there are these commercials and sounds playing on my computer and there are no windows open. I tried scanning for viruses and bugs on the computer but nothing was caught. I have tried to uninstall the flashplayer and then reinstalling it but the sounds keep playing. I have tried unplugging my computer and letting it sit for a while but nothing seems to work. I have tried everything and I can't seem to figure out why these sounds keep playing. I can't turn it off and I can't figure out where it is coming from. They sound like commercials on tv or on the radio or something. Please help.

    1- Please click HERE to download HijackThis.

    2- Run the program.

    3- Click on the Main Menu button if not already there.

    4- Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

    5- Copy and paste the scan log from Notepad into your next reply. Do not attach it.

    6- Do not "Fix" anything unless advised to do so.


    For Windows 7 and Vista:

    If Windows is denying access to the Hosts file, run HijackThis as Administrator or disable the UAC first.

    It stopped.. Thankfully it stopped, it was driving me cray. I went to fb and just started opening and closing different apps and it stopped. I hope that doesnt happen again, but if it does, I know where to come. :)
