50 cent has stolen quarter of a million dollars _ starts up playing

Hi, I don't know where to post this on this forum. Hope it's the right one.

I get a sound file playing.  50 cent has stolen quarter of a million dollars ... and it comes up about every 5 minutes.

I had contacted Norton by phone and he took over my computer and executed Norton Eraser. It deleted some programs, but it did not get rid of the problem. I restored my HDD from a recent image, because I wanted some of my programs back.

The sound file plays appr. every 5 min. If I disconnect my network cable it doesn't play. So I guess that the sound file is located on the web and there is only a program that establishes the link. I don't need to have any program running for it to occur.

How can I find out what is the offending program.

Thank  you for any help.

Firstly, please do NOT try any 'quick fixes' or to solve this yourself.

It sounds like it's time to sign up for assistance from one of the free malware removal sites.  Please pick one and stay with them until your system is clean.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.
