    Hi Folks.......for some time now whenever I use MSN or I click on certain websites I get this stupid raindrop sound. Does anyone have any ideas how to disable this ridiculous sound ? It drives me insane esp if I`m listening to Music and this stupid sound interrupts it.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    I don't use the msn explorer because i have seen how much it can slow a pc down due to it's resource hoging processes and very unsecure browsing. most spyware is auto installed instead of a warning window.

    anyway. you may have to look through the options of the browser and look for it's sound settings and you should be able to disable those sounds.

    if not, you can always download and install firefox which is much faster and safer, and no extra crap and it blocks all popups and banner ads and other form of ads from all websites and then it reshapes the site to look like the ads were never there.

    firefox http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

    and the adblock plugin for it http://mysite.verizon.net/vze2241e/tips/id1.html faster and saver and it has no sound effects or anything else that can degrade performance.
