High pitched chirping virus

Specs: Windows 7
Definitely not hardware. Definitely a virus. I just got it today. High pitched chirping coming out of my 5.2 desktop speakers. It runs for about 5 minutes then stops. Machine subsequently freezes. Norton scan ran ok except for some suspect cookies. Guess they haven't figured it out yet.

How do you know this "Definitely not hardware. Definitely a virus" if no virus has been detected? What is the additional information that you have not given us?

Whatever, assuming you are right then have you tried MalwareBytes freebie on it?
This often finds what AV's miss:

Have you looked in Events?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Try turning one side on but not the other. Or change the balance to check each speaker independently. If it always happens when you startup, try safemode. It might be a conflict in a driverupdate.
