Unwanted Infomercials playing through my Speakers

How can I stop "infomercials" playing over my speakers even when I have not clicked on anything to generate them?

just passing over them makes them play -
I have to have the speaker Mute button on as on works machine andits most annoying for the adverts to blurt out.

If not them I have just cleared a friends PC of 8 virus/trojans that oneof the effects was random adverts playing over the speakers - he thought it was the Ham Radio freak next door -
Avast4 ran on boot-up cleared it.
