I am an Aussie expat living in Hong Kong so hope this does not preclude me from seeking assistance..we are more or less on the same side I guess!!
I am no Geek but some basic knowledge and willing to follow instructions.

Iam getting weird intermittent sound from my PC...rifle shots, sirens, bells, dogs barking ( I am not barking mad but maybe soon)
Running XP SP2 updated, Norton Anti virus and Utilities including GoBack, updated daily (would have to go back 2 months if all else fails!), McAfee Firewall.

Have run Norton scan in normal and safe mode and Trend Housecall in normal. Trend picked up JavaBytever.A but would not let me delete it..said it was in use. However a second scan did not detect it so I assume it was cleaned.

Have run AdAware, SpyBot, CCleaner, Spywareblaster, CWShredder, TDS3 which noted a change in Autostart registry, EWido which picked up tracking cookies others did not, Aboutbuster, Kill2me, WinPatrol...all these with Norton Restore turned off. .
Hijack log below and any advice greatly appreciated

I don't see anything wrong in your log.

Those sounds could they be caused by a program trying to warn you for something?
I have once spent an entire afternoon for unexpected sounds that turned out to be caused by a popupblocker.

One option you can try:

Thanks Metallica,

I have been out of town for a couple of days so just back on the case. I am not running any programmes that I know of that will constantly give such different warning sounds.....intermittent with no pattern I can detect, one minute barkig then next shots or sirens
I have disabled Windows sounds.
I ran the rootkit search and came up with this.

FYI.... smh ref is to a Sydney daily newspaper

I am a bit concerned that this rootkit search programme is trying to plant itself in my start up menu?

I notice that whenever the sounds play a file Qserver.exe shows up in Windows Task Manager Processes but I think this a Norton file??

If it is Symantecs Qserver.exe then it could be responding to something.

Can you try running a full systemscan with NAV in safe mode?

Let me know if it turns up anything.

Hi Pieter,

Did the full scan of NAV in safe mode...no infection found. Uninstalled Nero which is the only thing I have installed in recent times...not the cause (no surprise) but did get a siren sound blast when I started to uninstall.

The only pop up blocker I have is XP....don't install any strange tool bars etc.

Regards & thanks for your interest ......

I now feel a bit of an idiot!!! You were right first time but I did not realise what it might be.

I went through the .wav files and listened to them. Turns out it is my bl...dy McAfee Spam Killer which plays all these weird warning sounds when mail/spam arrives. I have had the program for a couple of years but re-installed recently and must have enabled sounds....I have now disabled sound and expect my problem has gone away. I have learned a bit more about spyware and files as well.
Apologies for wasting your time when you have more important things to do but you have restored my sanity and your guidance is greatly appreciated.

I will continue to watch the forum posts as part of my learning curve.

Cheers and thanks again

David
