Thank you - I'm sure the issue is here..
It's a very strange thing and doesn't seem to have any common features from one system to another. The last time I had it probably as much as 9 or 10 years ago, it was Microham Router which was the culprit, so I now don't know what to do for the best. I've no idea where it comes from as all scans with four different malware detectors have drawn a blank, even when I run them in safe mode.
I uninstalled the Lookup and it doesn't seem to happen, re-installed it and it does but - and it's a big but - it's so random and irregular that you can never be sure that it's gone or still there.
For the time being I've reluctantly uninstalled the Lookup again and I'll give it another few weeks to show.

There are no sound aspects to the Lookup at all the only time sound might be heard is if the call you looked up has sounds on their QRZ lookup page. The Microsoft control that displays the lookup information is a control build around Internet Explorer so it would play the sound on the lookup page thru the speakers but the actual lookup program has no sound calls to it at all..

Subject: [hamlogger] Interesting one for Rick..
This is a good one - after many years away, the Random Music Virus appears to be back.
The interesting thing this time is my PC sound panel says its coming from "Logger32 Callsign Lookups"
I wouldn't for a minute suggest that Rick's programme is compromised in any way, I'm sure he takes steps to prevent any malware incursions, but after monitoring it's behavior for a couple of weeks, it does only do this when that programme is active.
Just for the record the music is very random in style, varying from classical on one hand through MOR, current pop and old-school rock
I have Kaspersky Internet security and a full scan is clear, also checked with MalwareBytes and that's clear too.
