    I've had this problem a couple of times - my computer is playing music, leftover from a visit to a web page, and I can't find a way to turn it off. In one case it was a song from my kid's teacher's web site which played continuously even after I closed every tab and was the only user logged on; today it was from some page I had visited last night while exploring music web sites. I used the "restore session" option on Firefox and this great music started playing, and I really wanted to know what it was, but my media player wasn't open and none of my open tabs matched what I was hearing. Nor do I remember hearing it last night. As in the past, I checked the processes in task manager and didn't recognize a culprit there, though I'm no expert. So, I guess I have two questions - first, if I DO NOT want to hear a song played in an endless loop, how do I shut it off without completely shutting down, and second, if I really LIKE what I'm hearing and want to know what it is, how do I find out??? Thanks for any ideas you may have - I'm stumped! V:confused:
