    We don't reply via email. that would defeat the purpose of the message boards here at this forum. Please have your daughter join the forum & ask her question. Remind her that we will need basic system information to help her. Windows version would be a good starting point.

    My apologies I didn't notice the windows version when I was typing up this reply ......................oops

    A new term in born. A snoring computer.
    So when did your computer get chicken pox. Just kidding because that is what the human virus is.
    Anyhow here is what this nasty is and where it camefrom.

    Also Known as: pop PeopleOnPage Envolo Apropos Media AproposMedia
    Official Description: AproposMedia is the advert-showing part of the 'PeopleOnPage' program, an Internet Explorer sidebar which claims to show a list of other users of the current site.
    Comment: Opens pop-up adverts (which themselves may spawn other pop-ups) at regular intervals when Internet Explorer is in use. When the PeopleOnPage sidebar is open, the addresses of all pages visited are sent to the controlling server with a unique tracking ID.
    Manual removal: Go to the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs feature. Select and remove 'AM Server' and 'POP'.

    Information URL:

    If the sound is coming from within the computer then you may need it seen to by a technician.
    If the sound is coming from the speakers then uninstall the sound card or onboard sound, download fresh drivers and install them.
