I believe that I have the same issue as http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/328595/invisible-ads-and-wave-volume-resetting-to-zero/
As suggested by another post, I have updated Java.
I have also run scans using my Norton 360, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and downloaded and used CCleaner.
Pretty much the problem is:
On my master volume, the wave randomly resets and slides to 0. Also, invisible ads have been playing in the background. Currently, pop-ups have also started to appear.
While running GMER as suggested from the preparation guide, my computer froze and I was unable to complete it. I have attempted numerous times without success. Is there a way to run in safe mode?
