Distorted sound

Last night my music on both iTunes and Windows Media Player started sounding distorted with no treble, almost like what happens when speakers are turned up full blast, which I never did whatsoever. This sounds the same on headphones as well. I have no explanation for how this happened since I figured this kind of distortion would only happen as a result of maxing the volume on the speakers, which as I've said, I never did. Here are the specs:

Dell Inspiron 600m
Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and the latest upgrades
Sigma Tel Audio software
Intel Pentium M Processor 1500MHz
598MHz, 256MB of RAM

I posted this here because I think this is a hardware issue. I might have to replace something on this computer, but since so much is hard-wired onto the motherboard, I want to make sure I don't have to replace the motherboard all together. Any suggestions?

Never mind. It reverted back to sounding normal somehow. I ran PC-Cillin and Adaware and I suspect one of them fixed this problem, so it was probably spyware to begin with. (????)
