I'm new here and need some help! I don't know much about computers except the basic stuff most users know. I have a virus (or maybe multiple viruses?).
Sometimes background noise such as a gaming noise (like guns shooting and people shouting), or the phrase "Congratulations, you won!" noise will come up in the background. Sometimes this happens even when I don't have an internet browser open.
Also on top of that random pop ups will come up. One is "Secret Crush Alert!" I've also had pop ups for random businesses including Progressive Auto Insurance, and other Auto-related advertisements. These also happen even if I don't have a browser open.
I've tried everything I know how to do. I've run Avast, ThreatFire, and PandaCloud. They all say the full system scan is complete, but the problem still happens! This has been going on for a couple of months.
Please help me.. am not sure what to do. My computer is a Windows XP 2002 Media Center Edition. It is an Intel Core 2 CPU. 6400 @ 2.13GHz.
Let me know if there's more info you need. Thank you!
