Default Virus causing odd ring tone or song to play?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, This is my first posting. Since yesterday morning, when I hang up from a call, a very strange and loud sound/ring tone plays. This is not a ring tone that I have on my phone. It also happens when I go to "Media" and select a picture to look at and then exit from that screen, as well as when I read an SMS and exit back to the main screen. It is not something that I can stop. I read some forum posts regarding similar situations, from Nov 2009 and Apr 2010 that had many suggestions as to cause, e.g. virus, software problem, etc., as well as fixes, e.g. removing battery. One of the posts suggested that the person had received an SMS with sound, but I have not. I have removed the battery and it does not fix the problem. Perhaps there are other posts on this forum that I have thusfar been unable to drill down to. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
Thank you very much.
