I recently had a problem with a constant popping sound and started a thread here for help:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...ml#entry1400691

It helped me identify the source of the sound. It was suggested I post here to see if an infection is at the root of my problem.

To sum up, I was hearing an almost constant bubble popping sound which ended up in fact being the Windows XP Balloon Tip Sound.
After some trial and error with the advice given I found my registry had been changed to not show the balloons. Once I changed it back I began receiving the following balloon - "IP Protection Infection Detected" from Malwarebytes. Many IP's have shown up from various spots on the globe and it was suggested perhaps this forum could help me find if an infection on my PC is "calling out" to these IP's known to be associated with malware, etc.

The people on the other forum were awesome and helped me get this far. If anyone can help from here it would be greatly appreciated!

I reccomend you visit the Malwarebytes Forum and create an account there so they can help with you issue more easily.

I visited the Malwarebytes site and found out this is the first implementation of this feature and they are still working out the bugs. Thanks for all the help I have received here. It is much appreciated!
