    Get this;
    http://spybot.eon.net.au/

    Run it -- now

    See if that will catch the culprit, you've got a trojan and someone has remote access to your PC.

    I would definitely stay away from the banking online -- contact your bank offline and make arrangements for new passwords etc. to your accounts

    Are you using a firewall? If not, get one

    LOL
    You by any chance don't happen to have any voice recognition programs running do you??

    Sixteen of itself, Use The Cleaner as well to scan for trojans, and use a well-known virus scanner like Nortons or McAfee.

    Basically you can't remove a virus or trojan without the right tools, so there's no tweak for removing this thing Bring a lot of sugar.

    PS I inserted some random text to fool the virus into thinking it generated this message :laugh:

    Moctezuma05 this may not make sense but are you running XP and do you have your microphone plugged in? I had the same problem and looked every where for a solution (checked for trojans etc.). Still not 100% positive but I think my problem was windows office voice to text program operating behind the scenes and testing my sanity. By all means go ahead and check for virri and trojans ... it is always good to scan the system from time to time .... but just humor me and unplug your microphone for awhile as well if you have one plugged in.

    sixteen of its self??? sounds like a polymorphic virus to me you can also go in the registry to check and see if you have trojan set to load at startup.


    go to hkeylocalmachine/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/then all of the run,runservices etc...

    nah if it even happens offline i'd say its voice recognition stuff in XP/OfficeXP, my bosss had it enabled for a while and windows would minimise by theirself and all sorts of wierd stuff, just from the sounds of typing on the keyboard..
