I've had a very strange incident with xp pro x64 today. I've had it for over a year, and today It kept crashing, and eventually wouldn't boot at all. Okay... So, I use Ubuntu (a linux distribution) instead. Towards the end of the day, I decide to restart and try to boot into xp. Grub comes up, and whoa! No xp! um, ok.. So I boot back into linux and change the Grub. Alright, finally xp loads up, but... ? It takes a very long time (I check the task manager, but It doesn't show any process hogging cpu or ram); I find my virus protection software has been deleted (avast), and neither of my firewalls will work (I get some kind of system error). Then, I start hearing music coming from my speakers.. ? When I try to turn it up or down, the sound stays the same (its some kind of rock music?).. I open windows media player, and the installer comes up! ?? I have to reinstall it for some reason..
um ok, I'm starting to get freaked out now.. I go to system restore to try and revert to some other day, and I find that system restore has somehow been turned off!?! .... I turn off my computer, and guess what?? The music is still coming from my speakers!! wtf??? I turn my computer on and boot back into xp, only to find that windows media player has been deleted... I try booting into safe mode, but it crashes every time I try to run safe mode. I check dr. watson, and find that explorer has crashed every time I attempted to run safemode. Now I'm really freaked out.. I figure its some kind of virus? I run 2 firewalls, I have spyware doctor, ad-aware se personal, spybot search and destroy, avast antivirus, peer guardian,.. and numerous other programs that I run regularly..
So, I'm sitting at my desk typing this up on xp.. listening to some kind of beetles music.. hm, it's actually a radio station playing through my speakers somehow.
okay, well I have definitely never seen anything like this in my life.. please pm me if you have had a similar problem or you know wtf is going on..:sad:
