When in IE or MSN, I hear a "borp" sound when a page is opened that either has ads or sends cookies to my machine. Anyone notice this? I'm trying to confirm and identify this.

Hi mdoc, :thumbsup: to BC.

Do you have any anti-spyware programs like PestPatrol? PestPatrol makes a sound when its cookie patrol is turned on, maybe it something like that causing the sound.
There is no justice, there is just us.

the M$ installed popup blocker for IE that came with the SP2 upgrade makes a sound on my system when ever it blocks an item. It sort of sounds like a bubble breaking on mine. Maybe that's what is going on with yours?

Yeah, version 12/23/2003 4.3.0.7

But no, that is a complex sound. The blorp is a simple one and sounds like "borp" I have that sound file for it but no clue exactly what started it.

Click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Change the sound scheme.

A frame box "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" will open up.

Scroll down in the "Program events" screen to Explorer.

Here you will find a list of all the instances an alert will sound.

You ought to be able to see what item you're being alerted on; and you can change the sound or stop it too if you choose to do so.

not it. I turn off all sounds from that location (no sounds scheme) and it is still happening. Not just IE, but MSN also.

OK I have just solved the mystery. The borp sound is caused by a program called cookiepatrol.exe, and it is part of pestpatrol. NOW that I know what it is, I'll turn it back on. Thanks for pointing the way. :thumbsup:
