    Hi all.
    I have currently got two issues with my computer. One of them is that it is making a weird sound when it loads up an application or a web page. It also sort of stops a song when it is nearly finished and then resumes it after. I find that this error can go away when the power options are on high performance, but even when it is, it still makes this annoying sound on BF 3 and the computer almost jitters for a second or so. Need help soon please!

    The other issue is that my computer suffers from an "invalid process attachment error" now and again. It usually occurs after I do a disk clean up using CCleaner. What can I do to fix these errors please?

    Some questions:

    Have you run anitvirus and malware scans recently?
    What brand of memory are you using?
    Do you have a sound card installed?
    Are you using any non-standard or old game controllers?
    I assume the sound is coming out of your speakers. Can you describe it in more detail than "weird"?
    Have you tried this page for your stop error? It's a good starting point, and there is a link on that page to more generic STOP code troubleshooting.
    In Device Manager are any items listed with a yellow warning triangle?

    With the very limited info you have provided I would suggest that the problem is likely to be a faulty driver, registry, some kind of malware or possibly failing RAM.
