Solved Audio/music playing in background

October 4, 2011 at 09:20:50
Specs: Windows Vista sp1

Every 5 minutes +/- there is music (sounds like from a movie trailer) playing in the background on my computer. I think it's not from the explorer, because it is still playing when I close it, have also tryed to shut down most programs running in the background. I can't find out where it's coming from....i have tryed scanning with different scan-programs but no results....

Anyone that can help me?

Yes, it's still playing offline....also did a system restore to a earlier date, didn't help.

It maybe breakthrough from some local signal. Is it a laptop or PC?

If you have separate speakers, try turning the volume up high in the software then turning the speakers down instead.

It's a laptop. No, the sound come from the laptop-speakers....now it's even worse, the sounds starts before the last one is finished....i think i have to formate and reinstall windows...

Well, I guess it either has to be a virus or some sort of radio breakthrough. Reformat should cure the former. Nothing lost in trying MalwareBytes freebie if you haven't done so already (it often finds what AV's miss).

The only other thing I can think of to try and isolate it, is to go to your sound settings and see if muting anything in particular makes a difference.

did you try response #1?
If you are thinking of a reformat, maybe think of all options before doing so.
