Laptop has been hijacked by a musical tune

possum257, May 3, 7:22am
I was on facebook and clicked on theanimalrescuesite.greatergoo- and music started playing and it continues to play over and over even when I turn off my laptop. It's driving me bonkers! My laptop is an Acer, Aspire with Windows 8.1.
Can anyone please help me?!

and if it starts playing again when you restart it, tunr the volume down for a start then hunt out the startup list and delete the offending music

theanimalrescuesite.greatergoo- is a genuine site, and doesn't play music when you visit it, the music has probably been inserted on the facebook page you linked from - another damn good reason to block facebook permanently

Thankfully it stopped of its own accord after around an hour. Thanks to both of you for your advice. I know now never to visit that animal rescue site again!
BTW, turning down the volume on the laptop didn't make any difference.

It would've until you made it quieter when you got it sorted though, wouldn't it have?
