I hope I can get some help here. I'm on a Samsung NC10 Netbook with Windows XP (service pack 3). I'm accessing the internet through a wired connection, which in turn goes through a router.
For some reason, my computer has started playing what sounds like a coorporate radio ad at random intervals. It's just a quick 5-second bit, but it is annoying and I can't figure out why it's happening. I don't run ICQ, AIM, MSN, or any other program like that, so that's not the source of the audio.
So far, it has always been the same ad. It usually happens while Firefox is open. I think the ad is for a TV show; it has a male voice saying "You asked for more, so the guys are back" and concludes with "a new season starting soon", or something along those lines. The ad is usually preceeded by 2-3 random "clicking" sounds, although I'm not clicking anything.
I routinely scan my system using Avira Antivrus as well as Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. Avira did, in fact, alert me of a "html script virus" today, which I chose to delete. (Unfortunately, I didn't save a log file. Dumb, I know.) MBAM cleared out some stuff as well. According to both programs, my system should now be clean; -- however, the problem persists.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
