Hi

I have a computer wich runs on windows Vista 32bits, home ed. AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core prosessor 6000+ 3,00 Ghz med 4GB ram.

Yesterday when I openend up Firefox a very weird set of sounds/ music started playing. Kinda like taunting tunes. I switched to Internet Explorer and no sounds. Switch back to Firefox and there the sounds where again. Really weird. Then I shut my computer down for the night (it was too late to investigate further). When I started my machine today it moved sooooo sloooooowly. Opening a file folder took ~1 minute. Emptying garbage can +/- infinity. I then restarted into safe mode and used system restore to turn it back a couple days. No luck. It's still slow, but the music in Firefox is gone. I can use the machine, but it hangs at times and is just not in it's normal cheery mode...

So, what the heck was that Firefox "music" and what can be checked regarding the slowdown? Thanks guys.

What did it sound like? also when was the last time you scanned your computer for malware and viruses?

Kinda like weird carnival music or something. I scan it for viruses with AVG every night at 00:00. Malware approx.1,5 weeks ago.
When I had used the computer a little last time it got better. When I turned it on today it was really slow again and then AVG tray & Windows Explorer crashed.

When I started my computer again today it was ultra slow. Moving the mouse 1 cm took like 5 minutes. Then I restarted into safemode and my Windows security center could not be started. Machine still slow.

Please help!
