I've exhausted all the avenues of help I have available and none of which have worked. Here is the problem:

When using my DVD/CD Burner and ONLY when using it, any sound at all (streaming, mp3, wma, etc.) is slowed extremely and has a sort of metallic sound to it. The sound is similar to in The Matrix when Neo swallows the pill and it turns his throat metallic. I know that's a little geeky, but it's the only thing I can think of to describe the sound as. When I check my CPU performance while using the burner, it says my CPU usage is at 100%. This problem began a few months ago when I had a victorious bout against some nasty malware and spyware. Before this date, everything was fine! Is there any way at all that someone can give me some pointers as to what exactly is causing this problem??

I suspect you have remnants of viruses and such still on your computer.

This is the strange part........ removing viruses and such can cause other problems on your computer, although you've taken care of the actual problem itself.

Run a few more scans on your computer, using at least 4+ different programs... you have virus scans, malware scans, adware scans, trojan scans, rootkit scans, spyware scans.. etc.

There are FREE programs of each category that you can use,..... and you can use more than one from each category.

If all else fails, post a HJT log in the HijackThis section of this forum.
