Thank you.

In this age and day you shouldn't really have to get a virus right?

Seems like i had problems but now my broswer is acting like crap and no sound yet again.

Should uninstall adobe and reinstall or something. I think it's the main culprit.

And the sound is back on.

You're right doesn't seem like it's malware.

But it's very very random and sporadic.

If you only use adobe as a pdf reader then uninstall and replace with Foxit Reader http://www.filehippo...download_foxit/

When you install Foxit untick the toolbar offering

Apprently it's not just for pdf reader. Because when it crashed it said adobe not working on the youtube videos.

Also, I think it could be my skype not sure. But it randomly messes up my sound and I have to reboot it to get back on which is very weird.

Your Google Chrome browser already includes Adobe® Flash® Player built-in. Google Chrome will automatically update when new versions of Flash Player are available.

This is what you linked me said.

Okay seems like the sound problem is fixed.

My only concern is that when I occasionally click a link like say for example I google "physics". Wikipedia link pops up. When I click on it it occasionally redirects me somewhere else that has nothing to do with wikipedia.

I remember this is how I one of my previous viruses. But google chrome asks me permission to run this redirected site in which I obviously click no and it prevents me from ever getting a virus that way again.

Don't you think thats kinda weird?

It's chrome and firefox. It's not really rare. It's pretty consistent.

But the good thing is that chrome has a scrypt written so it doesn't allow anything without permission. So I can avoid viruses.
