i mute the sound on my laptop (windows xp) a lot so i'm not sure how long i've had this problem, but its probably been about 4 months: every now and then, maybe once a week a clip of shania twain's "gonna getcha" plays for about 30 seconds. i don't have this song on my computer. there's no pop ups, no blue screen of death. life goes on as usual after the sound. ad-aware and pc tools antivirus have not solved this problem. what the heck is this? will a simple system restore fix the problem?

Hi, cartooncutie

It 'sounds' like a WMP issue. (plz pardon the pun)
The title of the songs makes me think it also might be a"prank'.
Meaning malware. Some of that is written strictly for "fun".

To be on the safe side in advising you, a HJT log should be posted.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/ is the forum for that.
Please read carefully and click the links to read the necessary information.
Follow the advice regarding the anti-spyware program installations & online virus scans.
Then download the HJT application as explained, post in the same forum as the above link.

We'll analyze it and reply, typically with a day or so. :thumbsup:
