Default How in the hell..

Well, I accidently clicked Area 51 once, and it started up, and I quit. But then this happened... I mean like.. 15 minutes later.. All of a sudden sound started playing. I couldnt play the game, but it was running..




Yeah, uh.. seriouslly.. How? I mean when I got outta the game the first time, I hit the windows button, and went back to task manager, and ended the process. And then like 15 min later, it randomly starts with sound.


Anyone get this?

I never heard of such a thing, but watchout for "TANNTMO.exe" in your system process's and "MC.exe". Just letting you know those look espescially fishy.


P.S Reboot and try again.

I think its all good. At least spybot doesnt complain. Although, I have several locked virusus that Anti Vir has found. And I just havnt felt like booting into safe mode to get them. Ill do a hijack this and see what happens.

EDIT>
Hijack this looks fine.

Delete it if you don't need it. A51 must be something useless...

OK, A51 is Area 51. It is a game from HL2 base. Try these two things:

Restart PC
Uninstall and Reinatall Game.

You could always check whether it still runs after you've uninstalled the game too. Those two System Processes do look fishy.

Haha. And you have an alternative that isn't under featured or over specified?

I'd do a quick virus scan.. get NOD32 and scan for viruses and see if anything comes up.

EDIT:

Here is the link for the trial:

Hmm, well I think it was just an error that happened when I booted it, and then ended its process. So It just like decided to comeback and haunt me. But, thanks for the Advice!
