The Random Music Playing Virus is a colloquial phrase identifying browser hijackers and other PC threats that load audio clips under arbitrary conditions – and, it goes without saying, without your consent. While Random Music Playing Viruses were more popular in earlier years prior to the reorganization of the threat industry as a black market business institution, occasionally a Random Music Playing Virus still is seen attacking modern computers. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers only can suggest generalized good Web-browsing habits, along with using anti-malware software as necessary, for protecting your computer from such PC threats and removing a Random Music Playing Virus when the Random Music Playing Virus is noticed.

When Your Computer Says 'Play It Again, Sam' without Your Permission

The Random Music Playing Virus is, in some ways, a hallmark of the earlier years of threat design, when unsafe software was meant more for mischief than for making a profit. However, in terms of its functions, the Random Music Playing Virus still is very similar to a typical adware program since its most noticeable attack, playing audio-based clips, is essentially no different from delivering advertisements in other formats, such as pop-up windows. Modern Random Music Playing Virus attacks may be utilized to advertise particular products, or for general annoyance purposes (such as playing loud, aggressive music), and both styles of attacks have been confirmed in recent cases of Random Music Playing Virus infections.

Because the Random Music Playing Virus is a general name that's used for multiple kinds of PC threats that show this noticeable symptom, malware researchers can't single out any single piece of threat responsible for the Random Music Playing Virus's attacks. However, they have provided a short list of many symptoms that often are linked to the audio clip-playing attacks of a Random Music Playing Virus:

  • Misnamed files or processes that appear to be open in circumstances that they should be closed, according to the programs referenced by their names. These often can be tracked through Task Manager or, in some cases, through your default audio volume manager.
  • Normal programs that are hijacked and forced to include a Random Music Playing Virus's attack functions.
  • The presence of unrecognized audio management programs like Media Dashboard. These programs often are not inherently threatening but are abused by the Random Music Playing Virus for the purposes of playing its audio attacks.
