Audio files playing After IE8 is closed.
« on: December 29, 2009, 06:26:47 PM »

I am new here. I was directed here by some post on the net when i was googling my problem. My Dell Inspiron 1520 with Win XP sp3 has recently been hit by some strange hijacker/virus that none of the standard anti-viral, adware, spyware or malware software seems to be able to find. I am running IE 8.0.

The symptoms are that when the system is ON, suddenly, out of nowhere, i hear some audio ads background,
though no IE windows are visible anywhere. I check task manager and it shows IE process running at some 60,000 or 90,000 K. If I terminate the process, the audio ads stop playing and, 5-10 or so mins later it restarts and does the same thing.

Anyone has any suggestions for this problem? Appreicate any help here as this is quite annoying
