I've got Windows XP Pro SP2, laptop.
I picked up a virus and spyware and Sunday and have been clearing them off.
Currently, when connected to the internet (not surfing, just plugged in) the laptop starts playing sounds, specifically a couple comedy routines that appear to be ads. When this happens explorer.exe has a burst of CPU activity and killing explorer.exe stops the sound. No other process appears to be affected, to the best of my limited knowledge. Disconnecting from the internet also stops it.
The sound is sometimes the first thing that starts after a reboot.
I've got Spybot, Ad-Aware 2007, and just bought SpyEraser, and have Symantec Corp Antivirus. None of them find anything.
Anyone know what's going on?
