heya this may sound weird but I have like advertising coming through my headphones, even when I don't have my internet browser open. Is there any way of getting rid of that?. The last advertising thing was like do you know what makes you hungry? or something like that, its just very weird.

Lol that doesn't sound that least you don't hear it while the headphones are off...Actually I have a similar story...I was playing Americas Army and I was trying to listen for the enemy footsteps. So i turned my headphones up on full and all of a sudden I could faintly hear two other people talking and the occasional advertisements!? Turns out that I was picking up national radio through my headphones lol.

freitasm: If you are sure you don't have a web browser open then you should run your favourite anti-spyware software. I recommend Lavasoft AdAware and Microsoft AntiSpyware.

I just tried that and it didn't work as for Retardinator's response we do pick up radio stations on our normal phones so would that effect my computers audio? although I have had this laptop here where it is now heaps and no ads nothing come through.
