A few days ago, I noticed random sound clips coming from my TV speakers. This is followed eventually by a Plug & Play has unexpectedly stopped so Windows must be shutdown & restarted or Dsomething server process has unexpectedly stopped etc.
Gateway computer running Windows 7 is connected, via wire, to a large SHARP flatscreen.
The sound clips repeat on a loop and consist of bits of music, commercials, interviews etc, which repeats on a loop until shutdown.
The sound clips come thru the speakers when the computer is on and isn't dependent on opening up Firefox or IE.
I did some spelunking on the web, so think it's some kindof virus or malware perhaps? I have very specific places that I visit internet-wise so I believe it may have entered my computer via email and not a site.
I'm not a computergeek (I have lots of random bits of knowledge but am a serious plant & dog nerd) but I can follow directions.
Have run AVG & Malwarebytes but they've not found anything.
Someone on the Delphi Cookstalk forum recommended Combofix.
Any assistance is appreciated. If you need more info let me know what I can do to supply the needed info.
I don't want to send out any emails until this is fixed. Not sure if this "thing" perpetuates via email.
