Vocaroo | Voice message

I am getting this sound randomly from my speakers, but very infrequently. I have all windows sounds completely disabled, and system sounds completely muted. It is not one of the windows alert sounds (even though it sounds like one), I am pretty sure. I even downloaded Process Monitor and followed this (How to Find Which Program Is Making Sounds in the Background?) , and couldn't seem to find anything there either.

 

 I attached a processmonitor file Uploadfiles.io - logfile.pml

The sound appeared around 10:32. If anyone would mind looking. I haven't been able to find anything strange on procmon.

 

Thie sound pops up maybe every 2-3 days and is quite loud. It seems to only occur when I'm watching videos on the internet (youtube, twitch)-but it happens whether I'm using google chrome, or firefox! I really can't find any culprit programs that would make this sound, and I have done virus scans that came up clean.

 

I would greatly appreciate any help. This sound must have some origin...it has been driving me nuts for months trying to figure this out. Thans!

The log you captured doesn't have any useful information, as far as I can tell. As the article you gave said, you need to set up a filter to only include .wav files. Then, run ProcMon until you hear the sound and capture the log.

I tried applying a wav and a mp3 filter afterwards, but it found nothing!

Did you leave it to run until you got the sound?
