Random music plays on laptop

by Cloudfall / October 9, 2009 11:04 PM PDT

Hi all,

I was using Firefox today when all of a sudden, a piece of classical music that I had never heard of before started playing for roughly 10 seconds.

So, I ran a virus scan with the Trend Micro Housecall program as well as a McAfee scan (which is still running at the time of this post).

The Trend Micro scan came up with 0 threats. Does this mean that the music is not a virus? If so, what could it be?

Thanks in advance to any replies. Happy
