    Speaker problem

    A couple of weeks ago I played a training video on my windows 7 machine. Despite the fact that I have removed the disc from my DVD player I can still hear part of the program on my speakers, even if I am using another video. A whoosing sound is frequent and parts of the dialogue. I think that I downloaded the video to my hard drive but surely it shouldn't play when I don't want it to? it is spoiling the use of other DVDs. TIA

    Hi bobrobert,
    If you go to 'Device Manager' right click the DVD section and select 'Uninstall' then switch off & back on, it will automatically get replaced.

    Unfortunately it didn't work. I located the downloaded DVD and moved it to another hard drive without the operating system. Does Windows media player of quick time store the contents of the DVD. This one has me stumped.

    Perhaps clearing your Temp Internet Files (TIF) and other temp files will solve your problem. An app such as CCleaner can help to clean out temp files.

    Sorry this didn't work either. If it had been an internet program I would have suspected a trojan or a virus but it isn't. It is sony vegas media studio 10 and it is a training video from the disc. Every few minutes the intro from the video keeps blaring out from the speakers.

    If this behavior survives a re-boot then you probably have something starting when you boot the system. Use a tool such as Autoruns or WhatInStartup to check and manage what starts when you boot the PC.

    Note: Autoruns produces an enourmous amount of information. You should be concerned with the Logon tab. WhatInStartup is a simpler tool.

    Thanks I used the two programs. There were two autoruns that I could delete. Need to wait and see if the problem repeats.

    Thanks again for your help. I looked through the libraries to no avail. As I was doing it the sounds from my speaker were still chirping away. They survived an overnight boot.

    C cleaner threw up two start ups. Quick times tasks which I deleted. So hopefully no more sounds?

    The frigging thing is still "speaking" to me despite a re boot.
