Windows 7: Unknown Sound Volume Mixer

05 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7
Unknown Sound Volume Mixer

Svchost.exe virus

I've been on 4chan /g/ and they sent me here.
I'm not to sure on what this is, the application I've narrowed it down to is svchost.exe.
This thing plays sounds, songs, advertisements; kinda like someone is rotating through an AM radio station.

I've tried my best to remove this by myself and with Malware removal. None of those option seem to work. Maybe someone has dealt with this before.

I've used Norton AntiVirus, MalwareBytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials and none of them seem to help or find a problem, my guess is a rootkit
