I have a machine that is a XP PRO SP3. About a week ago it started randomly playing music and commercials with nothing open. When I try to google on that machine, I get a redirect to a random site. I ran Maleware bytes and got nothing. I ran Symantec Corp on it and got nothing. Please advise as I really do not want to have to reinstall this machine. I have looked in Task Manager and found an iexplore running. If I kill that process, the music stops.

Thank you for your time.

I've asked a mod to move this to a malware forum. Please wait for a malware specialist to respond.
