OK so three issues:

1) Popups - presume when you're surfing the net? Browsers have various popup blocker utilities - which browser are you using?

2) What's the sound actually doing? The "Wave" volume is a type of audio along with the others, does it keep dropping down?

3) The Omo stain removal - when did this happen, while you were turning on your PC? You didn't set that audio file as a windows startup sound did you? Go to Control Panel -> Sound and reset all the defaults. Failing that it's probably spyware or a virus.

I didn't see this until just then haha... On the sound thing it's kind of just fixed itself no idea how but i'm not complaining, However i still get random ads every now and again. Like i won't see the actual ad but it just starts randomly playing. So weird but i'll go to that control panel and reset everything like you said.

Haha - I was wondering what happened with you Smile

Those sounds are the list of things that Windows plays when various "events" happens: errors, warnings, changes, startup/shutdown etc - you can put fun things in there if you can be bothered and there are many themes available. On an old PC I had the Beverley Hills Cop theme (just 2 reps of the main rift) as my Windows startup sound, an even earlier one (we're walking Windows 95 now) I used to change it all the time - panther snarl, extract from Hexen (game), extract from Warcraft...good times Smile

With the ads anyway - it's probably web-related as well, maybe do a spyware scan (Spybot S&D) to be sure.

1) give 'em the ol' Nintendo-cartridge treatment
2) clean off the coke/chips/cum stuck on them
3) replace the hardware

Well the intranet is at a different location to the Internet link, the Intranet working means your IE and general network link is fine, meaning the problem lies in you server's link to the internet, or your PCs link to the proxy.

Unfortunately there are so many permutations I can't really begin to offer specific advice without knowing the network topology from PC to the outside world...

Is the issue at school or at home? Since you referred to the school intranet I presume at school?

So you can't get Internet at either - is this on the same machine?

Is there any correlation between the two - like, do they have anything in common?

Hey Prus my laptop is screwed.. I got this virus again that i've had before (antimalware doctor) and i tried to do the exact same thing i did last time to get rid of it and it isn't working.. If i turn on the computer it just stops on the windows log in page, so i have to go to safe mode and run my antivirus program but while it is scanning the laptop just restarts like half way through it.. I've gone on google and tried pretty much every solution on their but it still won't work, any ideas? This could be one for the pros i think... I'll probably just end up buying a new laptop.

Don't worry about it mate, unless you know how to build a laptop again piece by piece.
