    * I hear music, Is this just me?

    I have recently installed the new Windows 7 RTM OS, Now is my ears deceiving me because at random (Without any webpages open, or any applications) I hear random music that comes from my computer speakers. (No attached devices).

    Why am I hearing this, I thought maybe at random it was a Web browser that was open, It wasn't, I thought it was a software program I had open, It wasn't.

    It is like a radio station of the UK or something like that. I cannot really pick where the hell it is coming from. I really think I am losing my mind.

    Try this -
    Unplug your speakers. - Can you still here it?
    Click on the speaker icon and see if theres actually music playing, should be a green bar going up and down if somethings playing.

    The speakers are internal

    Oddly enough, It comes and goes. I was sitting here playing the PS3 online and all of a sudden this music started blarring away for a minute or two and then stopped. I did listen and their was atleast a radio station name mentioned but it skipped my mind.

    I was like whoa, That was freaky. I never have music playing when I am using the PS3. I listen to all the people yell at each other to stop shooting one another on the PS3. Strange but yeah.

    So personally I think I am going a bit on the in-sane side of times.

    It's a "annoying adware virus" - friend had it on his computer and I found killing it by removing a process. Sadly I forget what the process is called, but in taskmgr - you should see it - it's really random/weird.

    This is due to interference, your speakers are picking up signals from local radio stations.

    That's true. Electronic circuits sometimes picks up radio frequencies.
