Is my computer possesed? Hearing voices
    #1880753 - 09/04/03 11:53 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Please tell me that there is some easy explanation as to why my computer started singing "Cherish".

It only does it a few times a day, but when I click on a link, it will immediately start that old song, female singing, where I think the line is "Cherish the love", kind of an upbeat song. She only gets out the first word though, "Cherish".

It first happened really late a night, and it was a little spooky. Is there some sort of virus that would cause this?

haha now that's some funny shit :nut: 

Not sure what that could be, but if anything, you might have picked up a trojan. Scan with your anti-virus, anti-spyware, and some sort anti-trojan. One of those should find something that shouldnt be there.

Maybe you have your personal settings to play that song unbeknownst to you?

hope that helps removing the ghost in your machine :smile:

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is driving me fucking nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:nut: :nut: :nut: :nut: :nut: :nut: :nut:

And to top it all off, I finally figured out who it is.  It is that freaking Madonna song, Cherish.

If someone can't help me with this soon, I may be forced to go "Office Space" on my computer.

Oh, and my antivirus software detected nothing.

I never use scheduler.

And no one else has access to this computer other than my girlfriend, and she doesn't know shit about computers.

Try ad-aware or spybot.

My old computer would send text to screen when i had my back turned. I think it was laughing at me.

at this point i think we can be relatively certain seperation exists as a fallacy of finite perception, and the only barrier to infinite creativity is a preimposed notion of certainty and artificial conditioning. nothing is without origin

Are you sure no one ever has had access to your comp?
This type of thing used to be a semi common joke.
Check your sounds, a pc can be made to make any sound after a certain action is perfomed. It can be set fairly quickly. And some of the actions can be obscure so they dont happen often.
Did you try adaware?
Try it. As opposed to an antivrus program.
That is probly your problem.
Or someone is screwin with you.

Or maybe someone set up a scheduled task every few min. to play a sound.

Go to 'Sounds and Multimedia' in the control panel. Check out the sounds for 'Default Beep', 'Exclamation' etc. It could be in there somewhere.

Perhaps it's a banner, there are banner ads that have audio now and are very annoying. I'll be listening to music and somehow one will pop up or be on a page I'm on and it'll start telling me to go see the new Spy Kids movie or what not and flying all over my fucking screen. It could be that.
