    Short Story
    Wave meter in volume control keeps stopping. I googled it, seems to be a virus. Performed a virus scan, came up with nothing. Did it with another anti-virus program, also showed nothing. Need help. Thanks.

    Long Story
    So basically, I wanted to watch a youtube video. When I played it, there was no sound. Thinking it was a simple volume problem, I checked the video volume, the small icon on the taskbar, and even went into the control panel to adjust the volume settings. I thought it might be my headphones, but I tried using the speakers and neither worked. I tried doing the voice playback, and then I could hear my voice. I thought maybe it was fixed. Played the video, no sound. At that point I thought it was my sound card. I didn't want to replace it, so I kept trying to look for a better solution. After much frustration, I managed to make my way into the volume control. Start - Control Panel - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices - Adjust the System Volume - Audio - Sound Playback: Default Device: SoundMAX Digital Audio - Volume - Wave. I saw that the Wave option was all the way down, and moved it up. After moving it, I could hear the video crystal clear, so I closed all the windows I didn't need anymore. Well, after about 30 seconds, the volume shut off again. I went back into volume control, and the wave bar was all the way down again. I raised it, and closed the window. I was looking for the apply button to become available, for I had assumed that not applying settings caused it to stop again. The apply button never became available. So I closed out again. The sound played for another 30 seconds before it stopped. I kept trying to raise the bar on the wave option, but it would just keep stopping. I decided to keep the window open. I watched the bar as the video was playing, but it didn't fall down. The sound did stop but the bar was still where I had raised it. As soon as I clicked the bar, the sound came back on. At this point I kinda figured that I should just google the fix. I went and found some forums with this problem, and saw that it may have been a virus that was affecting it. I went ahead and ran a virus scan using Avast Anti-virus. Avast came up with nothing. It showed that everything was fine. I kept looking for answers, but all the solutions suggested a virus. I again ran a scan, this time using malewarebytes. Nothing again. Now I'm here asking for help. Any would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    It isn't common for an infection to take control of the system's sound controls. You will often find in other threads that people suggest it might be an infection just because they can't suggest any other reason for the problem.

    Best thing to do is run a deep on line scan which will be fairly conclusive in showing if you are infected or not. Please follow these instructions carefully and we shall see if it finds anything.


    Eset online scan instructions.
    IMPORTANT ---> Please make sure you follow the instruction to uncheck the box next to Remove found threats. Eset will detect anything that looks even remotely suspicious, this can include legitimate program files. If you do not uncheck the box, as instructed, Eset will automatically remove all suspect files which could leave some of your software inoperative. If you make a mistake these files can be restored from quarantine, but it would be preferable not to add any extra work to the clean up of your system.

    • Disable your existing Anti Virus following these instructions.
    • Please go here to use the Eset Online Scanner.
    • When the web page opens click on this button [​IMG]
    • If you are not using Internet Explorer you will see a message box open asking you to to download the ESET Smart Installer, click on the link and allow it to download and then run it. Accept the Terms of use and click on Start. The required components will download.
    • If using Internet Explorer the Terms of use box will open immediately, accept it and click on Start.
    • After the download is complete the Computer scan settings window will open, IMPORTANT ----> uncheck the box next to Remove found threats and click on Start. The virus signature database will then download which may take some time depending on the speed of your internet connection. The scan will automatically start when the download is complete.
    • This is a very thorough scan and may take several hours to complete depending on how much data you have on your hard drive. Do not interrupt it, be patient and let it finish.
    • A Scan Results window will appear at the end of the scan. If it lists any number of Infected Files click on List of found threats. Click on Copy to clipboard, come back to this thread and right click on the message box. Select Paste and the report will appear, add any comments you have and post the reply.
    • Back on the Eset window, click the Back button and then click on Finish.

    Trying ESET, but it got to step 2 out of 4 (using Chrome), and said Initialization: Unexpected error 2002. It is at 100%, but I can only click back. Help?

    May be it is an infection, Eset does not usually have a problem unless something is blocking it.

    Please run this scan and post the log.


    Please download RKill
    There are three buttons to choose from with different names on, select the first one and save it to your desktop.


    • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
    • If using Vista or Windows 7, right-click on it and select Run As Administrator.
    • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
    • A log pops up at the end of the run. This log file is located at C:\rkill.log. Please Copy & Paste the entire log in your next reply.
    • If you do not see the black box flash on the screen delete the icon from the desktop and go back to the link for the download, select the next button and try to run the tool again, continue to repeat this process using the remaining buttons until the tool runs. You will find further links if you scroll down the page with other names, try them one at a time.
    • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

    Happy New Year to you also.

    Rkill has found a ZeroAccess Rootkit infection which is quite high level.

    I would recommend, as a precaution, you change all your passwords used to log into web sites on a clean PC and do not use this PC to log into any sites other than this one and your email account until we have checked the PC is clean. If you use this system to log into any financial institutions, banks, building societies, etc, you should inform the respective companies that your system may have been compromised.

    Please run this scan below to delete the infection. This should stop it causing any further issues, but we will need to run further checks to make sure there are no other infections in the system.

    Download RogueKiller (by tigzy) and save direct to your Desktop.
    On the web page select the 32bit version.

    • Quit all running programs.
    • Start RogueKiller.exe by double clicking on the icon.
    • Wait until Prescan has finished.
    • Ensure all boxes are ticked under "Report" tab.
    • Click on Scan and let it finish.
    • Click on the Delete button.
    • Click on Report when complete. Copy/paste the contents of the report and paste into your next reply.

    Whoa, looks like a very powerful virus. Thankfully, I don't store any important data on this computer. Mostly for entertainment use. I did the scan and a tab popped up to tell me how to remove it. Here is the first report before I reboot and rescan.

    So, I tested the sound, and it seemed to work, but as it went on, it stopped again.The sound did stay on longer; about 2-3 minutes longer. I feel like it was related to the ZeroAccess, but I really can't pinpoint it.

    Any other ideas on why it doesn't work?

    Of the many PC's I've cleaned infections from of which a lot had ZeroAccess I've never seen one that had a sound issue, I am fairly confident it is not due to the infection, more than likely a driver or hardware issue. What sound source are you checking it with, a game or sound file on the system or a CD/DVD, try both and let me know the outcome.

    Please now see if you can get Eset to run, make sure you refer back to the instructions in post 4 to make sure you don't let it remove anything and that you retrieve the log.

    I've been using Youtube to check it. I play a video to see if the sound works. It's averaging around 2 mins and 45 sec. I will try to check with the others just to make sure. I'll retry Eset as well. But today I'm busy, so will attempt it at a later date. Thanks!

    Put in a music CD and see how that goes, then we will know if it is a problem with your sound or it is related to the internet. Eset should run now that the infection has gone, but it may find some more.

    If Eset will not run please follow this to run another scan and post both the logs produced.

    Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) and save it to your desktop. Do not get tempted to download Regclean Pro.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

    • Double-click on FRST to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    • Press theScan button.
    • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run from. Please copy and paste it into your next reply.
    • The first time the tool is run, it makes another log (Addition.txt). Please also copy and paste that into your reply.

    I tried FRST but when I ran it, it suddenly stopped and asked me if I wanted to send an error report. I sent one. I tried 2 more times, and it said the same thing. I tried the 64bit instead, but that was not compatible with my computer. I will try the CD when I can find one... somewhere. I will try to run ESET again as well.

    ESET found 3 things, which I deleted. It didn't provide a report, but I did copy down some stuff:


    C:\download\firefox\BestVideoDownloaderSetup.exe a variant of Win32/Adware.Yontoo.B application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
    C:\Program Files\SmartPCFix\SmartPCFix.exe a variant of Win32/Adware.SmartPCFix.A application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
    C:\WINDOWS\Temp\1AB.tmp Win32/Olmarik.AWO trojan cleaned by deleting - quarantined


    I tried the sound on Youtube once again, it didn't work. I will try the CD once I find one.
