Specs: Windows 7, HP PAVILLION
Whether i am on the internet or not....all of a sudden a radio broadcast starts or some Black Rap Crap music comes on....i ran a complete virus scan and a complete scan for spyware and it still happens....this started two days ago. I checked all my programs and nothing new is listed.

The next time it happens, open the task manager. Try to identify the program that's running. Stop the process or application.

Years ago, I used to get ham radio transmissions through my stereo system. The power supply wire that was connected to the receptacle was acting as an antenna. I don't think that's what's happening to you but you could unplug the box as a test.

SARGE, you have what's known as a Bootkit.

What version of Windows 7 are you running, 32bit or 64bit?..

You didn't say that it was browser related in your original post.

I am not sure if it browser related, because it happens even when I do not have the internet open.

It's most likely a Bootkit, if you're hearing audio ads when nothings open. Please first, run Rkill: http://download.bleepingcomputer.co... after it finishes terminating the malicious process, don't reboot as this will cause the malware to start up again. Also, if you have UAC enabled, you may need to run it with admin privilages.. You can do this by right right clicking the file and selecting "Run as Administrator". Then, download TDSSkiller from here and run a scan: http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?q... please scroll down to the bottom of the page for instructions on how to run it.

Let me know if this helps!
