Ad audio and no ad on Win 10

3 posts in this topic

OK this has been a bit weird. After the latest Win 10 forced upgrade/patch I will be on a any given web page and I am getting advertisement audio which generally is totally unrelated to the page I am looking at. I mean; I am on a hardware page and getting a voice ad for female hygiene stuff....really!

I check what I have open re web pages and there is no coinciding ads/pop-ups that I can see. I check Task manager...and see nothing there either.

Anybody else having this experience. It is very annoying having to hit the mute button.

Thanks in advance, Guido.

Remove Video And Audio Ads From Windows Background (Removal Guide)

If you hearing random audio ads in the Windows background while browsing the Internet, then it is possible that your computer is infected with an adware program.

The adware responsible for these random audio ads in background is bundled with other free software that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed adware without your knowledge.

Once this malicious program is installed, whenever you will browse the Internet, an random audio ad will play in the background. These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the adware publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.

Instructions in link.

Thanks, I pretty much have done what suggested...ran Heavy Duty scans... Malware, Spybot, Afee etc. Picked throught the task manager saw no recognizable tell tail executables.

And it seems to have subsided after a few removals. But it still comes up from time to time.

I will investigate using the tools suggested in the link you provided.

Thanks for the help.

Guido.
