My name is Vikas. My computer is having a strange problem. When I am using the computer (watching videos on youtube, reading news, etc in IE, Firefox or any other browser), my computer works absolutely fine for some time, but all of a sudden it will hang. First the screens are jammed, then the mouse pointer, then there is a constant loud noise (tar tar tar tar ... ). The sound is still there even if I press the mute button on my computer. The only way to get rid of it is by hitting the power button to switch off the machine . Now if I mute my machine, then there is no sound went it hangs the next time.
This seems to be some strange virus. Can someone please help me.
Also, the day it first happened was on when we had visited a news site (which I knew had a virus but my father accidently accessed that site). Since then the Internet Explorer is also behaving wierd. It will not open when we first click on the Explorer Icon. It opens anf then closes immediately. We have to try it 3-4 times and then it finally opens without any issue. Please help.
