Strange problem
« on: May 24, 2009, 06:01:36 PM »
I have this strange virus problem where someone screams  "HELP ME"
It happens only now and then but it's so loud it scares the crap out of you. I finally turned the sound off.
I have ran all the programs I have but It still did it today.
Anyone else have this problem?
The computer hasn't lost and performance and it's not slowed down at all. Kind of harmless I guess but I would like to get rid of it.
The blues had a baby and they named it Rock & Roll

If your computer makes a sound, it has to come from a sound file, I think.  You should do a search for .wav, .mp3, .wmv, .ra, or other types of sound files.  If you find a strange name on one, that is probably it.

Google    audio virus    and you'll get lots of suggestions.

I had a similar thing happen on my work PC. I don't recall if or how I fixed it, but it hasn't happened in months.
