View Full Version : Hidden Downloads?

August 21st, 2004, 7:33 PM
Whenever I finish a download, there's this sound it makes. And now, every once in a while (like every half hour to an hour) that sound goes off about 10 times with like a 5 second interval between each. I'm not thinking much of it, but is it possible for unwanted downloads to take place without you knowing it? Dunno why I bother asking when I think I already know the answer...just wanna make sure...

Hmm... clean for spyware/adware. That's the only thing I could think that would be downloading without it being rather obvious...
