    Has anyone every had a audio advertisement which they can't find where its coming from?
    I keep hearing a 'Calgon' advert saying I'm pouring money down the drain when I don't use Calgon sink unblocker, but I can't find where its coming from? I can't see any adverts within any webpages I have open, its been happening a few days and I have Norton antivirus

    There are web pages that can have background audio, could that be the reason? Did you try to clear out the cache.

    I think I recall you saying you recently did a clean Windows install. Don't want to have to do that again, I guess.

      Under the Tools menu, there should be an option to "clear private data," then be sure that clear cache is checked. (Otherwise under Tools: Options/ Privacy).

      It would be interesting to hear what anti-spyware program that you have selected.

    Your computer has been hijacked. Which is another way of saying it's been infected with malware. Technically, you've been infected with the Mark.W0rm.

    To get rid of this crud, you will need to download and apply some remedial software, like Spybot Seach-and-Destroy or Ad-Aware.

    Before you do this, you will need to take a few steps:

    Identify the components of Mark.W0rm:
    Most important: Protect yourself from this happening again. Get one of the programs listed above, or mentioned in one of the articles!....kaspersky coupon
