Preferred Solution: HELP! music is playing in the background but no music program is open!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: HELP! music is playing in the background but no music program is open!

Are you close to a radio station's transmitter site and antenna? That sounds like "RFI" (Radio Frequency Interference" getting into your speaker system.

When you get it, unplug the speakers from the PC but leave them powered on and the volume up and see if you still get it. If you do it's RFI and the speaker system is picking it up or it's coming through the AC power line to the speakers. If this just started I would suspect either a bad cable ground or just a dirty plug connection somewhere in the system.

Dear Friends,

Over the last several days I have had ads playing in the background with no software open. I downloaded a script blocker from firefox but that didnt work. I then did a system restore and afterwards the problem remained. Several months back I had a problem where all google search results would automatically forward to other pages. Then it magically disappeared. Not sure if they are related. Here are logs. thanks so much!

Seems a bit silly, but (using the default xbox music app) I can't have music playing in the background. I want to be able to hear my music as I do other things (on the desktop in particular), but as soon as I switch to a different app, my music cuts off.

What gives? I'm pretty sure this is just me missing something - no way this would be built in. Or is there no way to get past the apps automatically suspending themselves? Shouldn't the music app start a background process? Searched, but couldn't find anything.

And having it playing but taking up a fifth of my screen is unacceptable: even my cell phone can keep things going in the background. Especially when hitting my volume button even shows a little media control. I can pause/skip a song, but not hear it?

I miss my Zune software.

A:Playing Music In The Background

I'm using the Slacker Radio App, it keeps playing if I leave Metro and go to my desktop. I'm listening to it now as I type this post in IE. I'm not suggesting you switch to Slacker Radio, I'm just pointing out that it's a metro app and it keeps playing in the background. I don't think your Xbox music app should quit like that. I don't use or even have that app installed so I can't be of much more help. I hope you get it working the way you want though.

Hey, I was on the internet going about normal browsing activity, and I thought an ad on a browser page was open. So I couldn't find the tab. I was wondering what was going on, I even closed my browser and any programs sound might have been coming from. Instead I find a program in my Volume Mixer with "Name Not Available" and has stupid obnoxious music coming through it. I muted it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's going to try and steal my passwords or do other malicious things. I'm great with computers, and I've tried everything in my own ability to get rid of it, including virus scans and checking startup and processes and such.

I need help! Thanks so much!

I have ZeroAccess rootkit on my laptop. I have an HP and got my laptop a little over a year ago but I was never given a CD to help reformat my system.

I was hijacked by OnPay,Inc or something like that, telling me that I had critical hard drive errors and it kept producing a ton of pop-ups. My desktop icons disappeared and my program names under START as well. I ran 'unhide' and that brought back my programs. I then did a sys restore to a previous point and that seemed to take care of the bulk of the problem. However, subsequently I started having random advertising(audio only)playing at random times. Also, my Google does not 'preview' when typing my search string. It takes a long time after hitting enter for it to display results. Sometimes they don't even display and I have to click on the actual seach icon to the right.
Also, I can hear audio when I watch Youtube, etc, but on one of my web based programs that I use, the audio is silent--only the video can be seen.

I went back after that and, in SAFE MODE, I ran TDDSKiller and it found nothing. I also ran COMBOFIX(sorry, it was before I found and read this site), so I am attaching the results as well.

I then did a complete scan with Malwarebytes which found no infected files.

After all the above, I am still have the sound problems, search sluggishness, and random ads/music playing. Please advise--your assistance is VERY GREATLY APPRECIATED.

For some reason, whenever I'm browsing music and commercials keep playing in the background. It's unrelated to what I'm looking at. I close all browsers but it still plays. I'm also having trouble with Internet Explorer. It keeps crashing. I tried to re-install it. I don't know if it's related. I tried Malwarebytes and it removed some malware but it doesn't look like it removed all of it. Please help.

We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

I am getting random radio style advertisements and short bursts of music playing through my PC (over everything else). This happens randomly and has woken me up at night the past couple of days. The last time this happened this morning I looked at the task manager and saw Media Dashboard V2. This pointed to a file called stdrt.exe locates in a Windows temp folder. Example:

C:\Windows\Temp\mrt2981.tmp\stdrt.exe

This morning I had 25 of these directories all starting with mrtXXXX.tmp... The earliest one was dated 5/12/2015 so this has been around on my system for awhile it appears. I attempted to use Old Timers tools to clean these up but every time I reboot my PC it seems to reappear. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Besides OTM and OTL, I have also run the followings scans:

I have some kind of sound thing on here called AC97 Sound Configuration which was put on by the guy who rebuilt my computer. I have some kind of music playing in the background which if I put it on there, was done without my knowing. How do I get it off. Also, I just want Windows media or whatever is simple to listen to music if I want to. Please tell me how to rid my computer of this stuff.
Thank you,
 

A:Music will not stop playing in background on my computer

"AC97 Sound Configuration" is most likely the the audio chipset software.

As for the music, you will need to find what is playing the music. It could be a webpage, a media player, another application, or several other sources.

WMP (Windows Media Player) is part of the OS and should already be installed/useable on the PC.

Hi, Ive recently been having random music and ads playing in the background of my computer (for the past 3 days it has played a spiderman ad). I usually only get one a day, and it plays even when no programs are open. Nothing new seems to pop up in the task manager when the ad comes on, and it only lasts for about 30 seconds. I am very confused as to what this is, and I hope to get some help on the issue, thanks.

This is not a "must have", but it is a lot of fun. You can play a video as desktop background which is especially nice if it is a music video. For that you need VLC. If you do not have it yet, you can install it from e.g. here ( Download VLC Media Player 1.1.2 - FileHippo.com ). And here are the few easy steps:

1. Open VLC and go to Tools > Preferences
2. Click on the icon called Video on the left (3d icon from the top)
3. Change Output (which is set to Default) to say Directx Video Output
4. Click on the Save button (important)
5. Now select the video you like to play -> Media > Open File
6. Right click on the VLC window where the video plays and go to Video > Directx Wallpaper
7. Minimize the VLC window and enjoy your new desktop

If you want to get out of it, right click on the VLC icon in the taskbar and Close VLC. In case you later want to use VLC for "normal" operation, you have to reset the Output to Default and Save it.

A:Have fun playing a music video as desktop background

Cool trick whs, thanks for sharing!

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CORPORATE/COMPANY OWNED COMPUTERS

Please do not request assistance for corporate/company owned computers. Many changes/deletions are made during the clean up process, some of which may involve uninstalling programs, deleting folders/files, changing settings and/or removing policies etc. As we have no way of knowing for sure if these are actually needed for company operations, malware issues in these cases should be handled by your own IT Departments in order to avoid any undesirable results.

Hi,

I have been having a really strange problem: if I listen really closely I can hear faint music coming out of my speakers / headphones connected to my speakers. It's sporadic and occasionally I can't hear it, but I usually can. I have absolutely no idea what's causing this; I scanned with the free version of Avira Antivir, Spybod S&D, and Superantispyware and I did find a couple of minor things, but after deleting them the music is still here (I'm also using Windows 7).

I started on the "Am I Infected What do I" do forum, the link to the thread below:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic424152.html I was surfing the internet looking for some project file the other day and somehow got a nasty virus/malware. I started noticing it when I was googling and being redirected to spam sites when clicking on search results, most of which had nothign to do with my search. PLus the URL did not match the result I clicked on and if I copied and pasted the URL directly it worked fine. THen i started getting music playing in teh background that wouldn't go away until I killed <iexplore.exe *32> in task manager. The previous forum thread details what we have done up to now.. but for a synopsis: Security check - Successfully ran - logs at end of post. SUPERAntiSPyware Free - Successfully scanned in Safe mode - Logs at end of Post Malwarebytes - Anty Malware - I removed my current version and followed your instructions to download and install a new version ensuring to rename the file before saving in download. I ran the Malware and have attached results to end of post. ESET - no logs attached - however it kept crashing due to teh virus that was opening another window and starting music/adds which eventually through an explorer error and then crashed IE including the virus scan. After 2 trys I downloaded the exe to my desktop and ran it there.I have since tried running windows update (as it popped up to upgrade explorer to version 9).... Read more

I apologize if this has already been addressed. I honestly don't know what I'm doing. My Vista's not playing any of the music files on my computer or my iPod on any music player I use (iTunes, WinAmp, the Rhapsody that came with it), though it plays anything else that's online. Other sounds on the computer are also playing (MSN, AIM, system sounds). What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

Have a Win.7 SP1 Laptop here that has issues with google redirects and playing ad's in the background randomly with no windows or anything else open. Processes look clear to me. Have ran SpybotS&D, Malwarebytes, AVG Free, Hi-Jack This, Crap Cleaner. From what I read, it seems to be a rootkit issue but when trying to install TDSSKiller, setup just never runs. Have tried to setup in Safemode but no good. Have tried running Rkill prior to attemping install of TDSS and that did nothing either. Please help... Don't know what else to do anymore. Thanks.

What virus causes internet explorer to open and plays music in background?
Hi everyone I have Trend Micro installed on my computer to detect spyware and more problems that are on my computer and it finds all problems but it just can not find the virus that is causing this issue. I have also ran HiJackThis and Malwarebites and Ad-Aware and none of them have found this virus either. I currently have music playing in my background and internet explorer is constantly opening and closing by itself. The random music is like ads and music and much more that plays such as commercials and sometimes what sound like live sports or concerts. Also when this happen the internet will run slower and it will sometimes close then open back up by itself and the music is gone.Please some one help me with this issue thanks so much. I believe the issue came from an email about FedEx that I opened I was expecting a package from them so I thought the email was legit. Thanks again for the help. I know this is a lot of information but I am in need of help and if you can thanks cause I really need this laptop for my schooling thanks again.

I am not sure if the title accurately tells what my issue is. I hope I can explain it.

When listening to music on my PC, it does not matter if I use Winamp, Songbird, Quicktime, Windows Media Player, or any other software. Every so often, there appears some sort of distortion, like the drive that the music is on slows down. I dont know if it is the driver or what. Its hard to explain. You have to hear it. I dont think its the mp3 file itself, cause I could play a song and it will be perfect, but then the next time I play it, it will distort. It is really driving my nuts cause I can't find the reason for it.

Anybody out here got any ideas? even crazy ones? Thanks.

Please follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html to provide us with application and system logs that can indicate application conflicts, application errors, system corruption, or system critical errors to help us determine if any of these are causing problems with your music playing.

So I searched around for a bit and found a few discussions about the Music app crashing, but none appear to be the problem I'm having. I can open the app and do most things in it. Search, navigate around, I can even play music most of the time except for one notable exception. When you click on an artist or album, the app opens a smaller window in the middle of the app where you can usually play the song, along with a few other options (like Play Top Songs or Explore Artist. Whenever I click play from this window, the app suddenly closes. This does not happen with music that I have files locally on my hard drive, it only happens with streaming music. I can get streaming music to play as long as I can find a play button elsewhere in the app aside from this window that pops up in the middle of the screen. But if a song is already playing, I can skip back and forth and navigate around the app. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app and this fixes it for a little while, but it eventually begins happening again. It crashes with zero other apps or programs running. I have AVG antivirus running, but I disabled that for a while and it still crashes. I noticed that when it does crash, the Music app doesn't close completely as it's still listed along with other running apps if I hover in the upper left corner and drag my mouse down to view all running apps.

Thoughts?

atikmpag.sys and Stop 116 show up on the BSOD

I have a two monitor display setup.
I usually also have Mozilla Thunderbird open as well as Mozilla Firefox and playing music from Amazon.
My AVG has been detecting Zperm over the last few weeks as well.
Thanks for the help!

Hey! My comp can play music but when I play DVDs or run .avis I only get background music and the vocal audio is so low it's almost muted. I can't figure it out. I have DivX installed and AC3Filter as well but I use WMP and Cyberlink PowerDVD, no vocals from either. Do I need codecs? How do I find out which I need?
 

A:Music Plays / No Vocals in Movies / Background Music Plays

I've been able to boost sound with the AC3Filter and get DVD vocals now through WMP but I still am not getting any vocals from my DVDs when played through my Cyberlink PowerDVD. Any suggestions? I'm sure I'm missing a codec or something but I can't figure out what. The website I used to go to to download audio codecs for WMP11 looks down for the count so I'm at a loss.

I keep getting a blue screen when i play music from my itunes, or when i play videos or music files online. The error message is something like "kernel page instack error" or something to that affect. It doesnt happen when i play movies from my windows media player or vlc player. I think it has something to do with my drivers, but i really dont know. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

Hello

Every 5 minutes +/- there is music (sounds like from a movie trailer) playing in the background on my computer. I think it's not from the explorer, because it is still playing when I close it, have also tried to shut down most programs running in the background. I can't find out where it's coming from....i have tryed scanning with different scan-programs but no results....have also tried system restore to an earlier date, but it did not help.

Hope someone can help me!

Hello, 
 
I've had no problems with my Laptop (Lenovo Y-Series, Windows 8) until my girlfriend and I watched Season 8 of Dexter on putlocker. Now, I'm fairly sure I have a virus, malware, rookit, whatever, as random music (that isn't to my taste by the way) plays in the background with no processes active. Below are the logs that appear to be commonly requested round these parts. Copied and pasted, since I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to just attach a text file. Thanks,
