Random music playing on laptop

by Sinkingmoon / February 27, 2012 9:34 PM PST

Random music is playing on my laptop. I ran Malwarebytes and Superantispyware on safe boot and a trojan was found. after it was found I rebooted my system and the music started up again. If I disconnect from the internet it stops. I also uninstalled both programs and installed microsoft security essentials and deep scan which lasted for 5 hours and nothing.

the music seems to stop if I uncheck the systems sounds and recheck. Also I noticed when the music was playing the modem was blinking like I was downloading something. the task bar says nothing is running. I did notice a super cookie (sol) called oolaya player. I then disconnected the internet and removed that cookie and I did not hear it again.

Then I rebooted the system, and again that annoying music played again till I disconnected from the internet. can anyone help me?

Can you tell if it is live, such as a radio broadcast, or something else such as a stream.
