Very Strange

This is not a wind up. Using the PC just doing random things out of the speakers come the words 'I count down the minutes till i can be with you again'. Seriously I've not been drinking. I tried to find whatever it was by 'Ad aware' and AVG Anti-spy ware. Nothing. Did not see anything running in Windows Task Manager.
Has any one had this or any suggestions.

It appears you might have inadvertently clicked on an advert or similar link - it happens occasionally.

Thanks Stuartli,
That's a relief.

More than likely as Stuartli says.Rebbot the system and see if this stops.

On certain sites (sorry, i forget which exactly - which one were you on at the time?)there are some very annoying anti drugs ads that kick in whether you click anything or not i think. Very disoncerting. Come to think of it, it has happenned to me on youtube i think, but there are other problem sites for it too.

if you clicked on an ad you do not want, you could try using the Host's file(recommeneded to me some while ago by Vog) ; using it manages to stop most ads appearing in the first place and makes visitng sites that much more pleasureable and easier;

if you do not like the Hosts file it is easily removed
