    Help!

    I just posted over a paragraph of information pertaining to my problem and when I submitted my post I was asked to sign back on? This is really strange! it appears that someone or something is copying my keystrokes or they are logged on to my machine phantomly. I keep hearing weir frenquency noises and I am not using wireless. I have comcast for my ISP and I want this crap to stop. I use Norton 360 for my anti-virus program. Also, after surfing I delete my web browser and I see two windows deleting my browser history when it should be only one.

    Please advise

    What browser are you using? With your browser launched bring up Task manager, how many instances of your browser are shown?

    Not an IE user so can not help with that. Sorry. As far as the frequency\sound(?). Is it coming from your tower, speakers?

    Your answers are a bit short when information is requested. Ok, you are on a lap top. Is the sound coming from your lap top or it`s speakers?

    I am sorry I guess it's coming from my speakers. It's a frequency sound like the noise you get from a cell phone when it's to close to a computer. I guess what I want to know is how can you detect when your computer is hijacked or being monitored?

    Not a user of Norton products either. If you have run a full scan then we`ll operate under the assumption, for now, that you are clean. One thing to try as far as the sound, mute the speakers and see if it persists.

    Let us know. In the mean time perhaps another Member will have some ideas.

    completed the scan and everything came back clean. But I can still hear the noise it sounds like it's coming from the hard drive?

    Re: Help!

    Do you live in an apartment? If you do, you should find out if they recently placed a signal booster for cell customers up on the roof. The Board usually allows this since they get revenue $$ for having it placed there if asked by a company. If they did, you'll get random feed back from your speakers of all sorts. :) You may just be near to a recently placed signal booster in your vacinity.

    As for that seeing two windows when deleting your browser history, next time take a picture I, as well as others would be interested to see what exactly it is you are seeing.
