Hello,
   Has anyone had problems with music invading online activities? I have been noticing this since the end of November-it doesn't seem to be specific to any one  website...music simply starts to play randomly-until today, it was just snippets, my virus program engages (I use Avast!) and the attempt would end. Until today, when I was on the Jacquie Lawson website and the music started up and this time it didn't stop until I closed the site. It is definitely "middle eastern" sounding-(I do not read anything into this except that the sociopaths who engage in this sort of activity most likely think that this kind of music will tend to be  be scarier to most people)
   I am not an expert in tech stuff, but know enough to get the feeling that the perpetrator is using random websites to "piggyback" their malicious coding. This is only speculation of course, and I would appreciate any feedback from the more experienced folks on this forum. I will elaborate in any way I can to help get to the bottom of this.
                              Thank you,
                                           Sparky9
PS I have scanned and searched my system-no viruses show up, nothing appears out of the ordinary, but the system definitely being broached somehow
