No need to be rude about it geez. Also, bit of a necro post but I'll be nice.
I basically snooped through the startup programs, services and task manager to find anything that seemed like it didn't belong. From there I found an oddly named file that was running, searched for it using the Windows search function and it led me to a folder with a predictably gibberish name containing a few files. One was an XML file that I edited some gibberish into and the other was a batch file that I renamed. After that, it stopped automatically restarting itself whenever I closed it, and the problem (random talking etc.) was gone. However I know some viruses can repair themselves, so of course I also cleaned it out with an anti-virus program. The specific program I used was Webroot Spysweeper (though it has since adopted the name Webroot SecureAnywhere) but bear in mind, this was quite some time ago on a PC running XP. It's doubtful that you'd be seeing the EXACT same thing nowadays, and the methods used to achieve the virus' intended results may also differ. Hence, I didn't think most of that info particularly relevant at the time of my previous post.
