I'm having some issues with my desktop. I'm not sure how long exactly it's been going on, so I'll give you some details and maybe you can help.
I just started working at home last week so I don't know if these problems have been going on before this or not. Last Thursday I was woke out of a dead sleep at 7am because my desktop speakers were blaring a rock song. I got up, a little scared ( ) and logged onto my computer. The sounds kept switching, from the rock song, to some type of comedy tv show with a laugh track, to a cartoon sounding tv show. These clips stayed on for anywhere between 10-15 seconds. I thought at first my husband had been watching youtube and forgot to shut the browser window, but there were NO programs running. So I opened up the processes tab in task manager and saw IEXPLORE.EXE was running (even though no one EVER uses it - and it was not listed on the running programs tab). I ended the process and the sounds stopped.
As soon as it happened I researched this but couldn't find anything about a virus/trojan that plays random tv/radio sounds. Next while I was searching all of the sudden when i tried to click a link in google i was redirected (a new tab was opened in firefox instead of the link I clicked) to random other pages. I figured out after that one problem I had was the Antivirus 2009 trojan and downloaded the Mbam program, and ran it and it deleted several things. I reran it in the full scan mode the next morning where it found some more.
Than I ran three antiviruses that I have on my computer and each picked up several things that were quarantined and deleted.
In a perfect world my problem would have been resolved, but unfortunately it's not. My computer is still randomly playing music/sounds throughout the day. The google problem is back so that if i search something i have to copy the url below the listing instead of clicking the google link. This site (bleepingcomputer) as well as others (trend micro, etc) are blocked and I'm told I can't access them. Also, I now cannot update my Avira antivirus program OR the MBAM program.
I've managed to download hijack this by using a proxy server and have run it. I've emailed myself and I'm attaching my logs for hijack this, and the two scans I ran with MBAM from my laptop. Any help would be forever appreciated!
I really, really don't want to reformat so if I can go in and delete/edit/fix this myself I'd really like to.
