Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Bit

Every once in a while, sound starts playing on my computer. When I open up the mixer it shows an application alongside all the other programs I have open, but it is labeled "Name Not Available". The sound is always some kind of ad.There is nothing unusual that I can see under Application or Processes in the task manager. The only change I have made to my computer recently is that I downloaded DivX Player, and I have since uninstalled it.

I've tried Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, IOBit, Kaspersky TDSS Killer, and Super Anti Spyware, but none find anything.

Hello it appears you have a protected Bootkit. It will need to be properly removed so you do not lose your system.

So I think we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
If Gmer won't run,skip it.

Let me know if all went well.
