Hi, I booted up my PC today and heard a strange chime when I logged in. Then I saw a Name not Available in my volume mixer. 

I went to sounds and selected no sounds and it was gone but when I selected Windows Default it came back again. 

Then I went through all the sounds in Windows Default and the sound I heard wasn't there.

I then selected Windows Default again and restarted multiple times to see if the sound was made by Name not Available or System Sounds.

After trying multiple times, I managed to open volume mixer and the sound was made by Name not Available. 

If someone could tell me if this is a virus or not and help me remove it, if it is, I would really appreciate it.
