So, at random times, with no applications running, my brand new Mac Pro plays half of a Michael Jackson song. Is it a virus? anyone know anything about this, or have an idea what it could be? It's a work computer, so nothing stupid gets downloaded. Thanks,

System Preferences -> Sound -> Sound Effects

It's set to something normal? Like Submarine, or Tink?

Man, that's Off the Wall.

The computer must want to Rock With You.

If you are alone at night. I'll bet that music can be a sudden Thriller (like seeing a Man in the Mirror!)

You could ignore it, but its Human Nature to want to solve the mystery, I suppose

Could just be a Bad computer.

Say Say Say, if you are not too rough (don't Wanna Be Startin' Somethin',) you might try to Beat It and see what happens.

Ha Ha! Well done Thax. I laughed 'til I stopped. :-)

This is me - this is what I do -

That's pretty funny, though, the same thing has happened to me from time to time. I will be in the middle of something and all of a sudden a song will start playing. I don't know what it is, but it's a current pop song of some sort. I have no way to shut it off, but as soon as the song is over it stops. I'm wondering if it plays from my iTunes Library or what the deal is. Is this happening to anyone else?
