A recent scan with Spysweeper found and removed a trojan about 2 weeks ago, neither it or McAfee could give it a name. Shortly afterwards my AOL browser (been using 9.0 VR version for about a year) has a sound played (drop.wav from AOL sounds folder or perhaps IE's 'blocked pop-up') with every page change and it never did that before. I have brutally extracted AOL from my system multiple times, including the files from 'Documents and Settings' folders, run RegistryMechanic, used Regedit to remove AOL entries, and then run RegistryMechanic again. Things usually are fine after reinstallation until I restart my computer once or twice then the 'bloop' is back. I have run Spysweeper, McAfee, Spybot, PestPatrol, Stinger, Windows Defender - all most current versions with newest definitions where applicable; and no further infection has been found (scans have been performed in and out of safe mode). IE continues to behave properly. Before I lose my mind or wipe my system and and reload everything (both of which are always fun); is there anybody who has an idea what is going on?
