i have been using and acer notebook for 2 months now but lately i have been getting error messages regarding the 9155.exe file, sadly i dont know that much about computers but i will pot what the error messages are next time they show up.

Ive also had a problem i have never encountered in which audio (or video?) advertisements are playing in the backround of my computer, i am literally hearing ads for things like tide and movie ads without any programs or windows running, ive checked task manager during the ads but i found nothing open but i dont want to touch the processes since my friend accidentally delted system32 from his computer.

Is there any help i can get?

UPDATE: the error message im getting is 9155.exe - Apllication error
The instruction at "0x0040c173" referenced memory at "0x00000004". The memory could not be "read".
Click ok to terminate the program.

IMO, seems to be affiliated with alexa.com, which I believe is a spyware/adware irritant.
