My computer occasisionally screams at me.

By dick2124 ·
I think i have some sort of malware that makes a woman's scream. It can be a bit surprising, if I am concentrating on something. Is anyone aware of (1) a particular malware thing that would do that, and (2) is there a package that you might be aware of that would address this issue? Sometimes it makes a grunting sound.

The combined efforts

Of everyone here may not suffice for this.

You are having a laugh.....Aren't you?....

You could check your sound (in the sound section of your computer) and see what you have it as.
Go into the Control Panel and then sound.

Did you walk away and forget to lock your screen?

I wonder if someone you know has grabbed some .wav files and assigned them to some of the more obscure system events. I've this before.

In XP, check your sounds control panel, sounds tab and look at program events, or change the "Sound Scheme" to Windows Default and see if you hear it again. Now if they were really clever they might have renamed the files to the same name as the default files. You can use the control panel to play the sounds just in case.

Can you blame it?

Have you scanned with anything?
Is your AV up to date?
What processes are running? (Process explorer)

On a more serious note.

Maybe your case fans? Mine tend to scream and groan when they're dirty or giving up the ghost.

All of my computers when they start give me the Welcome Message from the HAL 9000 and when they close down they ell me that This Conversation can serve no purpose Good by and then shut down.

They also make a variety of different noises but the one I really like is the Darlek Exterminating the contents of the Recycle Bin. I'm only sorry that I don't have Orac telling me that it's busy leave it alone but I must wait and hope. :0

Do you think my systems are infected?

It couldn't possibly be that I changed the Sounds could it? :^0

Not only that Santee

by OH Smeg In reply to You would...

But I've had to change about 50 computers after the people hear my NB start up.

They like it so much that they want it to instead of finding some .wav files that suit them better than mine do.

Maybe I should go into business setting up Custom Sound Schemes. :^0
