    radio-type commercials playing at random...

    Hey people my problem here is simple...

    for the past few days, I have been hearing this same radio commecial just start playing through my speakers. I know its coming from the computer because I turn up the volume and it gets loulder...

    Its like a commercial for some movie, "club red" i believe... but anyway its starting to freak me out, I have NAV 2002 installed but it hasn't really said anything as far as there being any viruii in the system....

    I guess I will run a full system scan via NAV and online through TrendMicro.. but what do you guys think?

    If no virii show up, try searching for Ad/Spyware on your system with Ad-Aware and Spybot.

    Nah - it's definitely AIM - it's not spyware or anything, it's part of the program. There is a free patch out there somewhere that will get rid of the ads, I forget the name, just search for AIM wudio ads or something in google.

    I'm sure there is a way to block AIM's access to port 80, but I'd rather attack the problem directly, as in removing that annoying feature or whatever you want to call it...
