    Hi everyone,

    I'm having a problem and I can't figure out how to solve it. When I open the Dashboard on my Mac (MBP 3.1, 2.2 GHz, Mac OS X 10.5.8), about 7 seconds later some ad/music something starts playing out of the blue. It's always the same thing (one of about 3 short audio clips that sound like a soap-opera commercial, with music and words) and it stops as soon as I exit the Dashboard.

    I X-ed out all the widgets that were active so right now my Dashboard is empty, I moved all the widgets from the widget library (so now that's also empty), but it still keeps playing it. The only thing that prevents it from starting is disconnecting from the Internet, so it's gotta be coming from some Internet-based source.

    If you could help me out with this,I'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much. It's driving me nuts.

    Have you logged out or restarted since moving the widgets? If not, do so. It could be that there is a widget in the corner of the screen somewhere you can't see it.
