  I built a new PC a couple of weeks ago with all new parts and its been working great until I ran into a snag today. While I was watching a youtube video my sound suddenly went really low and it started messing up going high and low and making popping noises and acting really randomly.  I didnt know what was going on and I messed with settings and searched around the internet for about 6 hours trying to find out what was going on.  I finally tracked it down to a strange program in my program files list.   I was looking in the program list for anything suspicious and I saw a couple things related to audio and when I deleted one of them it fixed my issue with sound.     I think it came from when I was trying out a program yesterday called mousotron.   I tried the program because I was trying to measure mouse movement and adjust my DPI for my new monitor and mouse sensitivity.  But I think the program might have been bundled with spyware. 


 This is the website where I downloaded the file :  http://www.blacksunsoftware.com/mousotron.html


  I also tried to go on virus total and scan the file but it comes up clean.  And I do have Norton antivirus on my pc.  I also have antimalware bytes.


 After I saw that it was a strange program I ran both of these virus scanners.  Norton found nothing and malewarebytes did find a couple entries but I cant be sure when I got those.  



   Anyway, I am wondering if somebody installed that audio program on my PC somehow that messed up my audio and if I am infected by a worse trojan also I dont know.


 The name of the program that I removed which fixed my sound was: DTSStudiosoundguiplugininstaller


 Also in my %appdata% folder I noticed some .cfg file that was not there before and it was full of strange code.   And I found a folder named .oracle_jre_usage.  I deleted both of those.
