This happens on a friend's computer I'm working on. I did some virus cleaning - MBAM, SuperAntySpyware, Spybot. It has a paid version of Kaspersky AV installed also. found a lot of malware.
Whenever the computer is restarted, one program refuses to close, and needs to be force-closed. The process description reads just "WMS Idle". I tried googling, but there are so many different programs with this abbreviation (WMS). Tried looking through the processes in Process Explorer & Task Manager - got no clues.
So, I'm turning to you people....
An additional problem on the same machine, if I may - my friend says that some time ago the sound on his machine suddenly became corrupted. He tried listening to it on speakers and through headphones and experienced the same changes to quality, like it was muffled or distorted in some way. Weird.
Any ideas what could cause this?
