To fix the volume: Install your audio drivers. If it's a brand name computer (dell, hp) then go to their website, and serach for the drivers.

For the virus problem: Run your anti-virus program in safe mode. Depending on what it says, and what is happeneing you may have to do more.

My cell phone internet is affected by virus. How do I get rid of it?

If you have a virus on your device, your safest bet is going to be to back up your device and do a factory reset. You can back up your device using a free program called "Samsung SmartSwitch" on your computer. However, keep in mind, if you do have a virus, when you backup you can potential backup the infected files with it. I recommend only backing up the photos and the contacts, then re-downloading the applications manually through the PlayStore after you get back into the phone.

To factory reset:
  1. Ensure device is powered off.

  2. Press and hold the Volume Up/Down buttons (located on the upper-left edge) and the Power button simultaneously. When the Samsung logo appears, release only the power button.
  3. From the Recovery screen, press the Volume down button to select wipe data/factory reset.
  4. Tap the Home icon (located at the bottom).
  5. Tap the Volume Up button to continue.
    Allow the factory reset process to complete (approximately 1 minute).
  6. Ensure 'reboot system now' is selected.
  7. Tap the Home icon .
    Allow up to 10 minutes for the factory data reset and reboot processes to complete.

Volume stuck on mute

I don't think you're stuck on mute I think you're having problems with your sound card. Go to device manager; if there is a yellow or red sign on sound then right click and try reinstall driver. Let me know if you have any questions. Pls rate this solution.

Flickering icon on task bar


I think its time you scanned your computer for viruses or Malware. I have seen this before and that is a clear indicator you might have a virus. Ad-Aware can scan for malware if you don't have Anti virus software check out AVG.

Good luck,
