Good evening Mr. C,
Thanks to you and your team for the personal attention, recommendations and advice you offered. It's only been a few days since we talked. However, I am pleased to report complete silence! It was,also,good to hear that you found nothing suspicious in my data base. Naturally I will check in every once in a while to provide any updates.
I do have one question. How often must I run Adblock Plus to keep it current.
Thank you for helping Mr. Selvan,
I have followed your instructions. Unfortunately there is not an application listed that is playing the audio. I Googled "random.commercials playing through my computer speakers," and surprisingly there were a fair number of posts describing the same issue.
While we are waiting selvan's next thought try some of these free scanners
Anti-Spyware/Malware/Hijacker Removal Tools
For getsusp add your email to its preferences and Malwarebytes do not accept the free premium trial.
As Peacekeeper has stated look at that link and if such tools as AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes Free don't help scroll down to near the end and follow the instructions for posting Hijackthis logs on a specialist forum as it would appear you've got rogue software installed. Those forums are experts at this sort of thing.
Most likely (with respect) you are mistaken when you say you get the commercials when you're not connected to the internet, and you have a browser window open (it may be hidden even) which is looping adverts.
If you're hearing something and you pull the cord, it's still going to play - the browser has downloaded it already.
Sorry for my delay in responding. I was busy creating lesson plans for the new school year.
Here are the actions that I have taken:
1) Uninstalled Bing program and Bing toolbar
2) Downloaded and ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. No threats found.
3) Downloaded and ran Adw Cleaner. No threats found.
4) Downloaded and ran Stinger. No threats found.
5) Downloaded and ran Belarc Advisor. All updates current.
Let's keep our fingers crossed that we have resolved this annoying issue. I will keep you posted with updates.
As I looked at your threads ....At first I thought you definitely had something (Going on) by the repetitive duplicate posts. Then I see you replied to others,(3) times to Safeboot. Actually in the future (1) post should suffice. If you feel that all is well, could you please mark this thread appropriately, so as we can consider it Answered?
All the Best,

This was another example of getting that (Banner Warning). I think it occurs when (2) people are posting at the same time, or one of the reasons? For when I went to (Add Reply) it stated that the content could not be found? In other words, you were thinking along the same lines I was.
