Preferred Solution: Virus generates random sounds 64bit Vista

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.)

Hi I am new here.

I am running Win XP Home SP2 and recently my computer has been making random background noises. Its like an IE7 mouse click. Sometimes it plays ads in the background and sometimes for long periods of time. I have had no other programs open that have advertisements built into at the time. I have AVG Free and it has decteted several trojans. So I stumped upto this point.

here is my HJT Log.

Mind you I did not have IE7 running at the time but HJT picked it up. Not sure... Anyways

I have been attempting to fix my neighbors computer for several days now. Among other things, every so often it randomly plays sounds (door creaking, redrum and others). I have run scans using malwarebytes, spybot, and AVG. I also ran Combofix (I know I was not supposed to do that yet, but I had not come across this site yet.). Malwarebytes and Spybot come back clean now, no detections at all. AVG is clean on a full scan, but if I leave the computer alone for a while or reboot AVG will report: Virus found JS/Generic;"c:\Windows\System32\405.js";"Moved to Virus Vault";"6/2/2010, 10:18:00PM";"file";"C:\Windows\system32\mshta.exe"I also removed executables called DL1.EXE from the startup files using Hijackthis.When I first started working on the machine it had Norton360. It reported that it was not working correctly. It also seemed to be blocking all of the other programs (malwarebytes, spybot and AVG) from updating. So I had to uninstall Norton360.It also had errors about User Policy not being started and the regular Vista theme was not displayed. All of those issues seem to have been corrected but the strange sounds and the AVG 405.js alerts still occur.I also just updated the machine to Vista SP2. Below is my DDS log, and the DDS Attach.txt , and GMER ark.txt are attached.I truly appreciate any help, I have hit a dead end.DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 Run by owner at 22:11:31.64 on W...

So I have been reading through the fourms and found a few threads like mine but none of their soultions have helped me so ill make my own thread. Over the past few months 4-6random 1second clips have been playing on my computer while doing normal things. I have tried disconecting the internet and the sounds continue. Also when the clips play I notice the ffdshow icon in the corner of my screen but I can't find ffdshow audio installed anywhere on my machine. Running WinVista Home SP1 if it helps.

It does not happen too often, at least to my knowledge(when i have my headphones on), but sometimes randomly, maybe once or twice a day i will hear this sound that sounds like someone screaming "you're dead", its the same sound every time. Sometimes i also hear a random "boing" noise. Currently running Vista 64.

Hey guys, im having an issue with this virus I seem to have got that make random audio noises at random.
I will be on my computer or even just having it on in anther room and hear random things like " you have mail" or once I heard a random Indian song being played. The confusing part is I have no Indian music on my computer what so ever.

I ran Malwarebytes and it did not find anything. I ran my Avast full scan, quick scan and boot scan and nothing came up. I ran another anti virus program (cant remember the name) which I deleted after it did not find anything either.

Im running Windows 7 64 bit, im open to any suggestions if you have any. Im fairly new to virus deleting so please make the steps on how to go about things as easy as possible for a none techy like myself. And more info you need to help my solve my problem please ask I will be glad to get it for you (if I know how).

Thanks for your time, Colin.

I've google'd it a bit after hearing it from a friend that random Windows sounds mean that I have some kind of malware/virus. Is this true? It kind of seems like a myth to me, but I'm not sure.

I need some help removing said virus, or fixing these sounds. (if it's not a virus, this thread will probably need to be moved)

I've scanned with MBAM, and no dice.

During the last week I repeatedly hear "Congratulations You Won" and at other times I hear what seem to be advertisements for various products. No programs are open.

A:Congratulations You Won and other random sounds virus?

Hello,Sorry we missed your topic here. I see that you have now posted a new topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic345555.html which is what we would have directed you to do had we seen this sooner. Now that you have posted a log, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply.

Hey again guys!

I think I may have somewhat of a peculiar virus. It seems to play 2 sounds kind of randomly, one is kind of like a deep yelping noise (kind of like youd hear from a dog but deeper in tone) and the other is a weird jingle, like an ice cream truck but its only 3 or 4 notes. I've had it happen both when firefox was open and closed to test so I don't think its a site playing some weird noise. They don't seem to be doing anything malicious but be annoying, but I figured I'd take a log and have you guys take a peek. Thanks!

Hi ajritter3, welcome to TSF.

I need to see a GMER log before we can begin. Please do the following.

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here and Save it to your Desktop. Double-click gmer.exe to run it. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent.
First, gmer will run a short, initial scan.
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.



Click the image to enlarge it


In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are UNCHECKED ...IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it to your next reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

On seemingly random occasions (it might happen in 30 seconds, it might happen in 3 weeks), with out any explanation, my computer will play a random sound, sometimes the same random sound consecutively (one is a person laughing, another I think is the beginning of a linkin park song, and another one I cannot describe).

Sometimes it annoys me, and a bit of the time it doesn't. All I know is that when it bothers me, it pisses me off.

I have access to a full system image backup and regular backup on a 1TB external hard drive as well as a Windows 7 Upgrade Disc.

SOME OTHER POSSIBLY PERTINENT INFORMATION:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast 5, and Microsoft Security Essentials all report a "Clean" status. No strange internet traffic detected by Comodo Firewall.

"dllhost.exe" seems to run when it happens, and continue to run UNTIL I ROLL OVER IT IN TASK MANAGER. Weird...

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

I have 2 "csrss.exe" processes.

If I remember this correctly, the problem started after I installed FFDshow on the Win7 RC where an FFDshow audio icon would appear when the sound was made. I have since then reformatted with the RTM and restored my data using Windows Easy Transfer and the sounds remain, regardless of FFDshow, and the icon no longer shows.

HiJackThis didn't seem to show anything suspicious, but I wouldn't know.

Other than this, the system seems utterly clean. No system slowdowns, no nothing. Just this sin... Read more

So about a week ago, I upgraded to Windows 7 on my custom-built gaming rig (screams problems right there, I know). Since then, the audio has been stuttering horribly: skipping and buzzing and producing all manner of broken sounds, especially when doing anything that wants a bit more RAM than nothing.

Anyway, a couple days ago, I heard a random barking noise coming through my speakers. However, since this was an isolated incident and nothing came of it, I really thought nothing of it. But just yesterday while I was sitting on my computer, listening to music through iTunes and browsing the web in Chrome, the system hung for a second, before the sound of a cat meowing played through my speakers. I glanced at the system tray as an extra icon had appeared in that moment, but before I could get a good glimpse of it, my system shut down entirely.

In the sequential reboot, it asked if I wanted to boot into safe mode, which I did, running through Ccleaner (cleaning everything), Spybot s&d, and then doing a thorough scrub with AVG Free. None of these turned up anything worth writing home about: a few tracker cookies according to AVG and Spybot that were dispatched with haste (and somehow managed to get around my hosts file block). I also took the opportunity to wipe out Viewpoint Media Player (which had reinstalled itself from AIM 7 after my most recent upgrade). I figured this would probably at least fix the problem somewhat.

How wrong I was.

Hello TechSupport people(s),
First off I would like to thank you guys for volunteering to do these kinds of things. I know a lot of ppl would be lost without you guys. Anyways, onto the subject.

Lately, my computer has been running a TINY bit slower, almost unnoticeable, but I have a feeling either spyware or a damn virus has infected my comp. When I open up my web browser, Firefox, it takes a little bit longer to open than usual... about maybe 1 second longer. It's basically insignificant but I want to catch the problem early.

In addition, there are random sound files that sometimes play on my computer. I read how to fix this using VISTA, but I dont use vista... I have Windows XP Pro w/SP2.

I ran the panda scan and attached it to the thread, in addition to the "extra.txt" Thank you for your help and I look forward to an answer.

recently i turned on my computer and random ad clips will play, without me starting any programs. when i went to do a system scan with AVG all of the components for AVG were gone. i tried to uninstall, and remove [using the AVG software removal found on there site] and then reinstall AVG, but it wouldn't even start up. I removed it again and tried to install AntiVir but it won't even start after the install. i went into services and tried to start it [which i also did with AVG initially when it was first installed]. and it gives me this message:

error 1053 - the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

i also went into task manager to see what process would spike when the ad clips were playing and the only one that increased in usage was iexplorer.exe so my thinking is there is some hidden explorer window open or something like that.

Hello there folks,

I've encountered a viral problem and can't seem to find any information on it. It started out as some "javaw.exe" permission window that would not stop popping up. Being the naive computer user I am I eventually gave in and clicked it. Then a window popped up saying something along the lines of a hard disk failure warning. Suddenly my desktop items disappeared completely and I started hearing random sounds coming from my computer like clips of radio shows and other random noises. I opened internet explorer to look for help but it kept redirecting anything I typed in the address bar or in google search. I scanned and removed some of the problems using Spybot, Malware Bytes, Super Spyware remover or whatever and rkill maybe more I was up pretty late trying to remove this thing.

The virus removal softwares brought my desktop items back but many of them appear a darker shade of colour and play random sounds when I click on them. The sound bites also still play randomly sometimes and the redirecting on internet explorer is still happening (in fact it was quite challenging just to get to this website). Another window also now keeps popping up saying my CCC Host is not working and that windows is shutting it down (not sure what this is exactly Im far from a computer expert).

okay I have ran SUPERantispyware, AVG Free, Antivirus.com online, CC & Malwarebytes.. And they all either say I have nothing wrong.. or that they fixed it.. But of course, they havent. One (I believe it is SUPERantispyware) said I have to download a program from another computer, then run it on mine.. Which I did, but it didnt fix it.

SO this is on my Sony Laptop. Running Windows 7.

If I turn my sound on, there is normally some sort of noise playing... Once it was Paula Deens show lol. Sometimes I cant figure out what it is.. it will just be music of some sort or random commercials. VERY annoying. I was even logged off last night. Sitting on the log on screen, and it was still playing. I turned off the wifi & at one point it did stop it.. But then after I tried it again, it still played. So I cant pinpoint if it is a Wifi thing or virus..

I think I have that redirect virus as well.. Sometimes I will click a link, or search for something, and it takes me to some other screen. But they dont seem to have the same names so it is hard for me to pinpoint what it is..

Besides all that, my laptop still gets the BSOD randomly, but I know that isnt a virus.. But it is something that happens..

Thanks for your help!

recently i turned on my computer and random ad sound clips will play, without me starting any programs. when i went to do a system scan with AVG all of the components for AVG were gone. i tried to uninstall, and remove [using the AVG software removal found on there site] and then reinstall AVG, but it wouldn't even start up. I removed it again and tried to install AntiVir but it won't even start after the install. i went into services and tried to start it [which i also did with AVG initially when it was first installed]. and it gives me this message:error 1053 - the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.i also went into task manager to see what process would spike when the ad clips were playing and the only one that increased in usage was iexplorer.exe so my thinking is there is some hidden explorer window open or something like that.also, here is my highjack this! logfile:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 12:12:38 PM, on 1/8/2010Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16945)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2ev...

Hi to all,

lately I have problem with my PC that is randomly restarting every 2 days or something like that. I read a lot of forums and posts that was actually directing me that I have some hardware problems. Before sending this post I tried almost everything to see what is wrong without any solution.

My computer is restarting when I'm logged on in windows but not at all when I'm running Ubuntu. I have checked the logs in windows, i have changed the settings to not restart my system in failure and to get a minidump but I don't get any minidump, any error in the logs or a BSOD. A lot of people in the forums were talking about bad RAM modules, checked all of my modules with memtest and no errors, then they were talking about drivers and graphic card problems, reinstalled all the drivers but still the same problem. Done stress tests to the CPU and graphic card without any restart att all in 100% load and without any error. Another possibility as I read was bad PSU, but if it was a bad PSU why didn't my PC restarted while I was making the stress tests or why is not restarting when I use Ubuntu.

Temperatures of NB,CPU and GPU are really very good, so is not that either.

Then I checked for viruses, worms, trojans etc and I didn't found anything.
I don't know what else to try or to do especially when I don't get any errors in the logs or minidump files and it doesn't happens the same when I use Ubuntu.

Dear BleepingComputer Staff

I am new to the forum so hello and I hope you can help. I have attached the files as instructed as best I can, and DDS file pasted below.

On Sunday 19th June I got the Windows Vista repair issue. It suggested hard drive was corrupt etc. I was able to run RKill.exe and Unhide.exe. I was also able to run Malware bytes. This "calmed" the situation down. Susequently I installed AVG and all scans report no issues. I thought all was fine until realising Internet Explorer sound was completely gone and random advert sounds were playing. This problem persists.

I have tried to fix the sound issue using many suggestions from many forums to no avail. As another possible solution I tonight ran a Windows recovery back to Saturday 18th June but this hasn't helped and I would say computer performance is worse now.

I would appreciate any advice you can give. I am admittedly useless with computers and have probably made many wrong turns on my journey since Sunday to here but would be really grateful for assistance.

If I have missed anything please let me know.

Regards

Kev (England, UK)

Whenever I access a folder containing pictures, the thumbnails for them generate -- and I can actually see them. But this only lasts for a few seconds; the thumbnails get replaced by Vista's generic landscape icon. I'm not sure when this problem started -- at first, I was not bothered by it, since I wasn't working with my photos, so I didn't pay attention to it. But it has persisted for at least a month, in all folders with pictures in them. And I've made sure that the "Show thumbnails" options were set in both "Folder Options" and "Advanced System Settings". Maybe it was from me changing the registry a long time ago? I'm not sure.So, if someone knows a key I could check to turn on/off thumbnails, that would be useful.Or, if you have any other idea how this problem occurred, I'd be really grateful. Thank you!

Was chatting with a friend today and she said she had some problems multitasking with me on msn and customers on the cruiseship asking her question in Itallian. Anyway she logged of and said we'll talk a bit later.

A few minutes after that she logged back on and sent me a link with 4 images from photobukket (not bucket as it should be). Since I had just talked to her I didn't think about it and opened the link. 5 sec later another friend sent me a msg with CHANGE YOUR MSN PASSWORD AND SECURITY QUESTION and then I knew I was hijacked.

I ran a full scan with trend micro internetsecurity 2009 pro and it only found a few cookies. Then I ran Spywarebot, it found nothing, Kaspersky online scanner found nothing
I then ran malwarebyte antimalware and it found and killed a reg entry called hijack something, don't remember excact name. and MSN cleaner found a entry called user~E1 and killed it.

Now I can't find anything no matter what I scan with, am I safe now?

I tried following the steps outlined in the 'first steps' file, but I am running Windows Vista 64-bit. DDS told me it would not work with my operating system, and GMER did not find any files so when I save the 'ark.txt' it's just a blank text document. Am I not following these steps correctly?

A little more about my problem: Just recently I've noticed some applications that use the internet are extremely choppy. I've also noticed that my Windows Vista theme has changed from the regular theme to something called 'windows vista basic'. This doesn't seem like a big deal but the only time I have seen this happen is when I run Google Picasa, a program that is too out of date to be run in the Windows Vista normal theme. I can't change the theme back to the original, it seems to be stuck in basic, leading me to believe that there might be something running in the background that doesn't support it. I've also noticed a small box appear in the top left hand corner of my screen for just a split second while using my computer. It appears every few minutes.

I'd be glad to post anything I can, but GMER and DDS weren't very fruitful. Thanks in advance.

Nick

Hi there,

AVG 8.5 Free found this 'packed.monder' virus and said that it removed it but the next day it says it has found it again. I haven't noticed anything else yet. Also, the 'DDS' scan tool says it isn't compatible with my OS. Thanking you in advance,

Actually I just noticed, when I ask AVG to remove the virus a windows window pops up saying 'Access is Denied' with a red symbol. AVG still moves it to the virus vault however.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit Service Pack 2

Hi, It seems my computer has been infected by virus/malware. Here are the symptoms. When I start up my PC "Windows Security Alert" asks me to block a program from accessing internet connections. The name of the file that the "Security Center" is trying to block keeps changing, the format being nnnn.exe (where nnnn is some randomly generated number). Also the "Microsoft Security Essentials" displays an attention message asking me to clean the computer. When I clean the computer the effect lasts only for the current session and when I start up the computer next time, I am back to the same problem discussed above. In addition to these symptoms, there is another that needs to be discussed. When I access "Windows Task Manager", it shows two entries in the "Applications" tab named "project1". I don't have any application named project1 running on my computer, so this seems to me like some application running in background. I have run HijackThis and I am attaching the log file. Please help to clean my computer. My operating system is windows xp and I am using "Microsoft Security Essentials" as my anti-malware.I am attaching the following files1. After-StartUp.GIF (The deskop after starting my PC)2. Cleaned-Up-Items.GIF (Microsoft Security Essentials log after cleaning up the computer)3. TaskManager.GIF (The application entries named "project1" can be seen)4. HijackThis.log (The HijackThis log).regar... Read more

My issue seems similar in description to this solved thread: http://forums.techguy.org/virus-other-malware-removal/936703-random-music-playing-virus-stdrt.html

When I first tried to plug in my Dell XPS L502X via HDMI cable to a Philips TV, it didn't work at first. I realised that somehow my NVIDIA GeForce 540M GT graphics card had been disable because it did not let me open the NVIDIA control panel. I downloaded the new driver and upon restarting, I could project on to the TV.

The problem started when I switched my "Playback device" under Sound settings to the Philips TV. I realised that it was playing random sounds/songs like someone switching channels on a radio intermittently. The sound was coming from "Name Not Available" in the volume mixer. There were no sound sources or video open in any windows at that moment. The sound was definitely coming from an online source as it stopped once I turned off my wireless internet. It has stopped for now, but I'm pretty sure it's going to come back.

I ran Kapersky's TDSkiller and also their free scan which found nothing.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi There, since few days ago I'm starting to get annoying popups from my NortonAV & Windows Defender (which is good ofcourse that theyre stopping the virus/malware) but then again the problem keeps popping up.

Ive scanned my system both Normal & Safemode with my Norton until it cant find anything else, same applies to my Windows Defender. I even scanned my system through the network (by sharing my C:\ (Drive)) with iolo's Anti Virus.

The virus's that keeps annoying me are:
Win32/Zlob.gen!CD
Win32/FakeSecSen

Which results in creating files such as:
C:\Users\Sixie\AppData\Local\Temp\sft_ver1.1454.0.exe
C:\Users\Sixie\AppData\Local\Temp\pwrmgr.exe
C:\Users\Sixie\AppData\Local\Temp\pwrmgr.exe.bat

and creating every 10min random xxx.dll (eg.
C:\Users\Sixie\AppData\Local\Temp\fccCrPiG.dll)
This random DLL's are linked to a thing called MSServer, PCHealth and such....

From Safemode, Ive deleted all files that can be deleted on C:\Users\Sixie\AppData\Local\Temp\
C:\Users\Sixie\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\
C:\Windows\Temp\
and even REGISTRY's (regedit) by searching names such as MSServer, pwrmgr.exe, sft_ver, PCHealth (most of them are gone)

Other times, sound starts playing that sounds like a commercial in webpages that shouldnt have anything playing on them.
I ran MSE, Super Antispyware, Spybot, and Malware Bytes all in Safe Mode with no success.

Thank you for any help.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
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. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top o...
