Windows 7 Computer randomly starts playing radio

#1
Hello,

For a while now, randomly throughout the day, my laptop randomly plays radio through the speakers, and I can't figure out what process is playing the music. It usually lasts for a few minutes, after which it goes silent. Is there a known malware that can do this type of thing?

Best regards,
Costin

You might want to try TDSSKiller from here and see if that finds anything http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/dl/4/
Additionally MalwareBytes makes a pretty decent RootKit tool which you can get here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-rootkit/
Good luck.
If either of those seem to have helped the issue then you may want to go forward with
JRT from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/junkware-removal-tool/dl/131/
Followed by ADWcleaner from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/dl/125/
Then a full custom scan with the free version of MalwareBytes Antimalware from here http://www.malwarebytes.org/
And finally just to be on the safe side a scan with this tool from Eset http://www.eset.com/int/home/products/online-scanner/

Thanks a lot. I did a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials first (as that's what I already had installed) and it found a trojan... I'll continue with other tools, but the radio station hasn't appeared since.
