This may be caused by a virus/malware/spyware. scan your computer with anti-virus and see if it still pops up. To stop it temporary, ctrl alt delete, process, close all internet explorers or w/e brower you use

My System


haha i used to have that..was really freaked out..some rap started playing when i was watching a movie...was like hmm ***?
if you press ctrl+alt+del there are weird things running in processes (by your username, not SYSTEM) like if im running VLC i will see VLC.exe and say musicinbackground.exe (obviously not it maybe something like s7595 or kwertfd.exe, something silly)

try closing it, scanning your pc and crossing your fingers
