Hi i recently have an irritating beep sound that takes priority over all the other Windows sounds (these include the error sounds, the warning and the info sounds). Whenever I do an action that will result in these popups, there will be a beep. For instance, when i end a task with Task Manager, a beep sound will accompany the warning. This beep only happened recently.
Can you assist me in solving this problem?
I am running Windows XP SP3 and my computer is about 3 years old.
Currently, I have locked my target at the registry.

Hi -
Open Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds -
Click each item that has a Speaker next to it - Below that is a Drop down menu - Click on the Down arrow -
Select the sound you would like , or move the bar upwards and click on None Etc -
There is a / Windows Default / Chime / Ding Etc - Select the sound you want or select None if that is what you prefer -
I hope this solves your problem, because if it has not then further steps can be taken -
The Critical stop or Critical battery noise may be the cause -

Thank You -

Nope. That does not solve the problem. I have checked all the tasks. None of them match the sound i heard. The sound is most probably from my sound card, as other internet users say. However, i think something has been modified by my last virus. Can you think of another solution?
