For the past couple of weeks I have been dealing with a virus that blasted music through my speakers randomly. I had no idea where it was coming from so I concluded that it was indeed a virus. Nothing out of the ordinary ever appeared in my task manager and Malware bytes, spyware doctor and spyware blaster all haven't found any trace of anything.
I found some forums suggesting SUPERantispyware, so I gave it a go and it detected about 16 adware cookie trackers and a couple other things I can't remember and I was only able to run the scan for about an hour. I removed them all in safemode and rebooted. My computer now begins to freeze up when I open google chrome browser or when I'm doing too many things at once. I haven't heard any music yet but it wasnt a frequent thing in the first place. Videos play slow and my typing is lagged at times. I still don't detect anything strange in my task manager.
Currently, I am rescanning with SUPERantispyware in hopes that it detects some more nasties and finds whatever is suddenly slowing me down.
Why is it that sometimes this crap doesn't really slow you down and freeze you until after its removed?
Thanks for your time.
