Any idea why this is happening and short of binning it what can be done? I really use it for my graphic work, but I also like to watch videos on it.

This also affects sound on Skype, and even the Windows start up tune.


It sounds like you have trojans on your machine. Download Spybot and run it. Don't forget to run the Spybot updates immediately after installation. Spybot is a freeware program.
