Audio of certain tv and movies play all by themselves

  1. Now and then I will hear the audio from the Tv show Top gear, certain ads, and the movie Street Fighter playing on my computer. I have no windows or programs open, and there is no file on my computer related to Top Gear or street fighter and Street Fighter has never been on my computer.

    The Audio lasts about 1 minute then it stops. If I pull out the ethernet cable, then it stops within 15 seconds.

    I have no idea what this is, but I assume it is some sort of spyware, what do you guys think?

    I tried running Ad-aware and spybot but it still happens. Btw I am running XP Professional on an AMD 3500 compaq with 1.5 gb ram

    You are definitely infected, try not to use internet explorer unless you have to. I would recommend Firefox for an internet browser. http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

    When infected by the Trojan.Spexta trojan, your computer will become an open mail relay which will allow your computer to be used to send out spam. Just out of curiosity did you ever get an email that you remember that said
