Is there spyware causing this sound?


When I am on line, I occasionally get an audio interruption that says "USA". It sounds like several people saying it in chorus. It occurs one or twice and then goes away.

Is this some kind of spyware or remnants of some other worm/bug?

I have Norton's System Works that is constantly updated with current virus definitions.

When you are online do u mean you are using AOL? If so aol has sounds that when someone logs on it plays the sound they pick The "USA" that you hear is not spyware or a virus its just a sound that you hear when a buddy of yours is logging on I have heard the same sound as well I would not worry about it.
