I have windows 7, and my computer is fairly new (9 months) I have never had a problem with it before, then last week, Avast (free) all of a sudden started popping up with warnings about every 5-20 seconds that it blocked something malicious.  I ran Avast antivirus, malwarebyte, and Kaspersky, but found nothing.  I installed updates, on everything, still couldn't find the problem.  The next morning I began getting random sound from my speakers, sometimes music, sometimes what sounded like cooking show segments, and someone comparing the fashion on madmen.  sometimes more than one program would be talking at the same time.  Always sounded static-y like it was getting a bad connection.  Only stopped when I turned off my wireless modem.  A friend who does tech stuff for a living and knows more than I do (I thought) took it over the weekend and ran some anti spyware stuff, said he couldn't really find much wrong.  I got it back today, and the random speaker issue is still driving me nuts.  I took avast off and put Microsoft security essentials, so no more avast pop-ups but what is going on?


I have tried running rkill, then tdsskiller, then malwarebytes in that order both in normal and safe modes, but nothing comes up wrong.  What is wrong and What do I do?

Hello, Appears to be a Zekos infection.

Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.
Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.
If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
