Hiya guys,

Just wanted to point out that this awesome site has solved alot of issues I've been experiencing before just by doing a search ;D
But now it seems that I've run into a solid wall with this weird infection.

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit. ( If it helps with anything )

The problem:

I've got an ¨ unknown source ¨ playing commercials, radio and any kind of audio when opening the audio manager ( It's running as soon as i boot up 'till i shut down my pc again ). I can't do anything against it except turning down it's volume. But i simply hate knowing that it is somewhere, somehow... still running a process. ( with bad intentions perhaps ) xD

Non of the few antivirus applications I've used has found this bugger. And they clasify my system as clean :o !?

I've been searching for a couple of days now and it seems I'm not the only one experiencing this. I've even found some posts in here describing the same issue but I won't follow the exact same steps in those threads because it seems like an individual walkthrough.

I hope that I'm posting in the correct category and you might be able to help me.

Thanks alot in advance.
