    hard to title this, easier to explain.

    had my computer for years, and this issue just started:

    system beeps at full volume after certain click events.


    One event is clicking to end a process in the task manager. (itunes helper, realupdate, etc, non-critical processes, that i have been ending for years without getting the beep).

    Another I noticed is after scanning with an anti-virus program. It found one result (actually erroneously listed; required by AdvertBan). When I clicked to cancel the results, it beeped the same full-volume beep.

    The beep is a DOS-sounding beep, not a cutesy xp-cartoon style beep.
    I have not done anything I can think of to initiate the beeping. No new programs or anything were installed. I'm the only user on the computer.

    I have a real-time antivirus, and real-time anti-spyware running all the time.
    I'm currently doing a scan with every scanner I have installed.

    Look at the sound settings and turn OFF all event sounds.
