Solved random audio clips playing on my computer

July 14, 2012 at 16:04:40
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, Intel Core2 Duo CPU, 4.00GB
My laptop computer plays random audio. These events are assoc. w/ process svchost.exe *32 increasing its CPU usage. Ending the process makes the clips go away, but the process restarts itself later. Attempts to remove the program result in "File in Use" message which says, "The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program". Its File description is "winrscmde".

This particular issue is due to a MBR infection. To fix this infection we need to recreate the Master Boot Records of the computer.

I ran these as recommended, and it seems to have worked.

1- rkill.exe
http://www.technibble.com/rkill-rep...
2- tdss killer

3- Malwarebytes

Thank you very much. The 'svchost.exe *32' was detected and eliminated. The random audio clips have stopped. Again, thank you.
Note: I had to save all three programs and then run each in order in safe mode. When I ran it in 'normal' or 'safe mode with networking' I got a blue screen and reboot.
