  1. I'm hearing the most annoying audio commercials (sounds like internet radio) coming from my laptop speakers, yet when I check Task Manager, I have no programs/processes running??? If I have iexplore running and close it out, the audio stops...but randomnly plays every 5-10 minutes or so... AARGHH! I did some surfing around in Google and was instructed to download HijackThis and attach the log file created after I ran a system scan... can someone please check out the attached log file and let me know what I need to do from here?

    thanks in advance!!!!
