    I am having this problem that I'm sure is related to Limewire. Shortly after installing Limewire and downloading a few things, I noticed that the PC started playing random audio out of the speakers. It lasts only for a few seconds. It is a different audio sample each time...sometimes a clip of a song, sometimes an advertisement for something. I ran my anti-spyware and anti-virus program and everything is showing up clean...even in safe mode. I even ran additional spyware programs just to make sure. I am using:

    NOD32 for anti-virus
    Spyware Doctor for anti-spyware

    I even ran spybot and AVG just to make sure. They only found cookies. This is driving me nuts. I have since removed limewire and the files I downloaded using it. I thought it might be something that changed a file under the sound profile, but I don't think that's it because the audio is happening even when the PC is idle. This is the strangest thing that has ever happened to my PC. I checked a prior post of someone on this site with a similar problem, but it got off topic because he had other things wrong also. Please help!

    honestly i dont remember what fixed it, i think i ran a virus scan in safe mode, but i had that happen to me and it creeped me out. more like mine was a racing car sound not just music or random, but always a race car..

    um do you use ad-aware? if not try that, may solve some of the issue if not all of it.

    best of luck

    I tried Ad-Aware and it only found cookies. I'm pretty sure it's ads in the background...I heard an ad for the Army the other day. If anyone knows how to read a HJT log, please let me know and I'll post one. Thank you for your help.

    Hmmm, It seems you have a malware I guess,

    On the red ! that is shaped triangle click on it and ask the moderators/admin to move your thread to Malware Removal forum, and post your hijackthis.

    First thing I would suggest is to remove Limewire and any other P2P programs you have.

    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    I have already removed Limewire. I have a bit torrent client, but that has been on there for a while and I have never had a problem with it. I've never had a problem until I made the dumb decision to run Limewire. I learned my mistake. Hrere is my HJT log:

    Looks fine. How is it running now? Any problems?
    What have you disabled with MSConfig?

    I have disabled the things you usally disable that are not needed to run the computer. The only other things I have active are my anti-virus, my spyware protection, my printer, my video .dlls, my sound card, and some other files like ctfmon.exe. I'm at work right now, so I can't remember everything.

    Again, this happened after Limewire was installed and some files were downloaded.

    Ok.
    Please perform a scan with Kaspersky Webscan Online Virus Scanner

    1. Read the Requirements and Privacy statement, then select "Accept".
    2. A new window will appear promting you to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky - "Do you want to install this software?".
    3. Click "Yes" or select "Install" to download the ActiveX controls that allows ActiveScan to run.
    4. When the download is complete it will say ready, click "Next".
    5. Click "Scan Settings" and check the option to use the Extended Database if available otherwise Standard).
    6. Click "Scan Options" and select both "Scan Archives" and "Scan Mail Bases".
    7. Click "OK".
    8. Under "Select a target to scan", click on "My Computer".
    9. When the scan is complete choose to save the results as "Save as Text" named kaspersky.txt to your desktop and post them in your next reply.

    Kaspersky does not remove anything but will provide a log of anything it finds. On August 8th, 2006 Kaspersky updated the software used for Free Online Virus Scanner. In order to continue using the online scanner you will need to uninstall the old version (if previously used) from your Add/Remove Programs list and then install the latest version. To do this, follow the steps here and reboot afterwards if your system does not reboot automatically or it will show 'Kaspersky Online Scanner license key was not found!
