Mysterious music, scraps of conversation, etc. keeps just popping up when browser is open

Posted

Every so often, bits of music, voices, and other noises just keep coming up. I have now turned the computer sound OFF, but of course I do sometimes want to actually listen to something. Any idea why this happens? Thanks.

The information below says that Java applet shows. I have tried very hard to eliminate java, which seems to totally screw up my computer system. It is possible that some form of it is hidden somewhere.
