Hey there i'm new here and its the first time I posted anything so I'm really sorry if this is the wrong forum.
I'm having a problem with my work-pc. Its always connected to the internet, and seeing that 2Gig cap usage is really unusual for a Sunday, I thought it to be Spyware uploading a lot of information. So I was recommended getting Spybot Search and Destroy, and after making a backup of the registry it scanned and fixed (deleted) all the errors, I also scaned for spyware and viruses which it removed. After I reboot the pc though, the sound was out of control, it's making a scratch sound and lagging a lot, I tried to restore the changes made to the registry but no luck, I've tried a lot of programs to repair the registry and clean it, I've tried Super antispyware, CCleaner, and AVG to Clean the whole system, and to be honest the pc never was this fast, but the sound is still crappy. Its like theres something loading in the background making it slower and causing the quality problems, like a frequency and when it gets to the peak it lags and scratches. When the sound gets like that the PC also gets slower. Also, my cursor gets funny sometimes, when two programs run, Winamp and firefox for instance, then my pointer gets stuck in the middle of the screen but you can still activate icons, know it sounds weird, for instance at the bottom of the taskbar when I want to access the icons it gets highlighted showing the mouse is over it, but the pointer is still stuck in the middle of the screen for 5 mins. or so. Thats when the sound gets weird and the pc gets a bit slower too. When nothing is running in the background, no programs, nothing, then my sound is ok.
I'm using Windows XP professional SP2, have a intel core 2 duo 4300, and it's onboard sound, which always worked until now.
I really hope someone can help me here because the boss dont want to format and it seems like something small and stupid that I'm missing here.
Thanks a lot!
