    I have 2 issues that have shown up on my PC.

    HJT Log follows the description of both issues.

    I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad R61i (7732/A12), Vista Ultimate w/SP2, 2GB RAM. Security is Windows Live Onecare. All O/S patches up-to-date.

    Issue 1: Random Sound

    Periodically the system will start playing random sounds. The sounds have been song clips, or synthesized cat meows. Not files from my computer (heaven forbid!). If I close my browser (Firefox 3.0.11), the sounds will stop. I have already checked Firefox add-ons, which are: "Down Them All", "Move Media Player" and "Speed Dial". All are up-to-date.

    Issue 2: Random "lock computer and go to login screen"

    If I leave my computer for a short time (less than 5 minutes) periodically the system will lock the computer and go to the login screen.

    I am not talking about a system / browser / application lock-up.
    I am talking about the system leaving the user logged in, but going to the login screen. To get a visual of what I am talking about, press <CTRL><ALT><DELETE> and select "Lock This Computer" (or press windows-L).

    Screen saver is set to "None".
    Current power plan is "Timers off (Presentation)"

    If I have not been specific enough, I greatly apologize.

    I am very grateful to all of you who volunteer to help.

    Bill

    Issue 2 has been resolved.

    Appears to simply have been something corrupted in configuration.

    Resolution:

    1. Changed power plan
    2. Activated a screen saver
    3. Allowed screen saver to start
    4. Changed screen saver back to "none"
    5. Changed power plan back

    This appears to be odd background sounds on specific web pages.

    Apologies for false alarm.
