Today my computer restarted randomly and when it turned back on, every time I opened IE, the computer starts playing random collections of advertisements in the background. I can mute the specific problem in my volume mixer for the speakers and it was titled "Name Not Available". I ran a Norton 360 scan and a Malwarebytes scans and nothing was discovered. I really want to thank you all in advance for all the assistance that you can provide me with.
