We are familiar with the sound the system makes when you install a USB device and when you remove it. When you plug in a thumb drive, for example, the tone is a rising one and when you remove it, it is a descending tone. My question is this, periodically my computer plays the tone like I have removed a USB peripheral, but I haven't. I have done virus checks and spyware checks using about 15 different programs, but all say I am clean. What could be causing the tone to play?

It could be anything you have plugged in as a usb device; camera, webcam, printer etc. In many of these items, when you use it or, conversly, finish using it, it will make that familiar sound.

It only makes that sound when you actually remove the device or use the system tray to "safely remove it".

I am not removing anything, but the system still makes that sound periodically.

We all have different configurations, I guess. If I switch on (or off) my camera or printer, it certainly makes that "ding dong"

You are absolutely right. It does make that sound if you turn something on or off. It does that when I turn my printer off while leaving it connected. The problem is I'm not turning anything off. I am not disconnecting anything. There are no loose connections.

My printer is not on. My mouse is connected, but never loses connectivity. I'll just hear that "removal"/"turn off" sound periodically.

It's gonna be hard to figger out what this is without some more info.

I'd suggest leaving Task Manager open to the Processes tab - and then waiting until you hear the tone to see what's consumed more resources at that time.

I'd suggest finding out the exact tone (try your Sound setup in Control Panel - it'll allow you to try the different tones until you find the right one). Then, when you find the tone, you can use a program like Process Monitor to capture the events that caused it (haven't tried this myself, so this is a bit of a guess).
