If I have internet explorer open, my windows will change especially if I click on a message to open or just view. I also hear like water running in the background and sometimes I hear a man talking. I think it is just something running in the background but I am not sure how to get rid of it. I have ran search and destroy, anti virus and anit spy, nothing is coming up. I also checked to see what is actually using the cpu when I have these difficulties and it is all legit.

HELP! I am going nuts, my computer is soooooo slow and I am unable to check my emails (most of the time).

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

See BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources. In #4 there is a list of several free online anti-virus scans which you can perform. I would also recommend that you download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users.

I'm not sure what may be causing the background noises. I now that some ISPs like AOL include a Buddy list that utilizes sounds to notify when a Buddy is online.

If your not finding any malware and your computer still seems to be slow, see Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.
