My dad used to get this virus on his computer that would play audio in the background involving music bits he would never own including "Star Wars theme". It eventually rendered his computer useless in a matter of a few months. Well just 4 minutes ago I just had an audio pop on while I was logging into my laptop and it was playing some "Taylor Swift" crap. I'm afraid the same thing is happening. I ran spybot the free version and nothing...except a few cookies that I just quarantined. Other than that any other ideas?

Apparently Microsoft Essentials isnt compatible with Windows 8 so I had to download some other one.

Windows Defender in Windows 8 is the same as MSE in previous version of Windows. You don't really need to install an extra AV in Windows 8.

I haven't had this particular virus, so I can't speak from personal experience. However, I did a quick search for you on Google and this post seems to be of relevance: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120708105129AAgkzxP

I would recommend trying the process detailed in that post to see if it solves the problem. After you get rid of the virus, I recommend you download and install AdBlock and No-Script if you don't have them already. These will prevent viruses and adware from infecting your PC through online advertisements and unauthorized scripts.

You should give your father a crashcourse in computer security. I can count on one hand the number of viruses I've seen on my personal machines in the last 10-15 years, all you need is half decent AV software and some common sense (don't download porn, warez, movies etc., don't click on random links in e-mails, don't open strange e-mails etc.).
