Ok so i'm just surfing the net normally and occasionally i will hear the windows error sound however no error box pops up indicating about any error or anything to indicate the reason for it? I'm just wondering what causes this.

Try looking in the Event Viewer to see if any errors are showing up at the times that this is happening.

Event Viewer: Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You should uninstall and then reinstall your avast! virus scanner. The sounds you are hearing could be a result of the scanner or some other program throwing an error without displaying a message box.
