I just got rid of winpc-antivirus this morning and I've had some pretty serious issues with spyware and viruses in the past, but just today I've noticed something very very strange.
Sound clips, seemingly from news reports, will start playing every now and again on my laptop without me running any programs. Usually they start and seem to run on a loop, going through several different clips before repeating and then finally stopping for quite some time.
The sound is coming through my speakers without anything being run, I can't see anything strange on the desktop and I really don't know what else to say. It's very disconcerting.
These sound clips started before I removed winpc-antivirus and I'm concerned that they may be linked to it in some way.
Has anyone heard of any malware that causes these effects? If so, what is the best way to locate and remove it?
Thank you! xx
