Alright so I've had this problem for a couple of days now and it is starting to get really annoying. Whenever I use an internet browser like firefox or chrome random audio ads will start playing and I cant find the process anywhere in task manager. I've already run Spybot, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, and Super Antispyware multiple times, but these have done nothing to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Draxxoon,

There are a couple of possible causes, and therefore a couple of different solutions.

1) The first thing I'd like you to look at is a list of all your programs installed.
If there are any programs listed which are unfamiliar to you, I'd advise you to uninstall them.

2) Have you visited any suspicious websites recently? If so, those websites may have placed files onto your computer, which allows them to play this annoying audio ad's. You might want to try to clean your temporary internet files. This can be done in each browser, or by using tools such as CCleaner (be careful though!)

3) There is a serious indication for possible malware on your system, as several (well known) anti virus/spyware program's are unable to detect any issues.
If the above possible solutions have not solved the issue, I'd advice you to start a new topic in the Security > Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section.
However, don't be alarmed to quickly. If your system is running fine, without any other problems or possible indications for spyware/malware, it may just be a hidden process bugging your system. The experts on this forum will be able to quickly identify the problem and solve it :thumbsup:

Hope this helps you out for a start!

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic341992.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
