First my apologies if I am in the wrong place or format. I am new to the forum and have little experience in posting generally.

 

My problem: since yesterday (Feb 2) my W10 custom built computer unpredictably and at irregular but longish intervals goes "ca-ching"

I say that because I googled and found two sound files for cash register sounds and the sound is exactly like the second, so labelled.

Tried:not my printer - occurs even if switched off. I have Firefox and Outlook open most of the time but not related to activity - happens if I am not doing anything. Event viewer files (I am no expert) no help. I looked through Windows Sounds but could not find anything connected to this sound.

 

I wonder if I am hacked - though Kaperky records no event, Malwarebytes and MW Anti-Exploit seem happy.

Any advice would be very welcome

 

I have uploaded the sound file I got from the net

That is the sound of money being deposited to your bank account!

I wish. But it might be an idea to check my accounts that it is not travelling the other way.

We have a funny tongue in cheek saying in Australia, about our ex prime minister, anything going wrong it was " Blame Abbott" (imitating the "progressive" media).

So I think: Blame Microsoft! - maybe.

Thank you for the idea - i do have a couple of external USBs and a wireless-USB keyboard and mouse. I checked them and the USB hibs in Disk Manager and Device Manger and they passed.

The good news is that except for one more time this morning it has not happened. However the email arrived dingle is back, which I had stopped before - I'll have to  go back and reconfigure.
