When I connect to my internet, audio from the background starts to play.  It is either news or commercials.  It also maxs out my CPU usage.  Can someone please help me with this issue!  I have not found anything to detect this bug but a friend of mine told me he had the samething and came to this site for help.

Let`s see if it really a virus is.It might be an unwanted application.Download ESET online scanner from here - http://download.eset.com/special/eos/esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe

Start the application and agree.Click on advance settings and put ticks as shown below.It will download virus signatures and start scanning and clean if it is necessary.



You can also download and install Malwarebytes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/dl/7/

This sounds like Zekos, which infects rpcss.dll. Rkill will show whether this is the case.
Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.
rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/
iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/

  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • Do not reboot until instructed.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

Once the tool has finished, a text file named Rkill.txt should be located on the desktop. Please copy and paste the contents into your next reply.
