View Full Version : browser running in background?
I was infected with the vista security tool virus. I ran malaware anti-malware and avast and it seemed to have gotten rid of the virus. The problem is now that every now and then i get an audio advertisement like my browser is running (but it appears not to be) and my router is showing traffic. I did task manager and dont see my browser running and i still get the audio advertisement even when i do have my browser running and its on a site with nothing.
So what is the audio advertisement about? Perhaps a clue you can track down...
My wife's Toshiba notebook has a screen saver that has a little guy walk across the screen talking... First couple of times I had to deal with it was in the middle of the night. Yah, flashlight and drawn gun for the "livingroom noise" she woke me about... HAHAHA.... Actually took a couple days to figure it out.
You may have something similar... or you could have been HiJacked.
Try running this app from Trend Micro - Not the Beta version:
Let us know how it turns out...
Are you getting the "tick" "tick-tick" like you're surfing?
