    Hello there.

    I recently did an optional update through Windows Update and have since noticed an apparently-related issue. The update was Office 2007 SP3.

    Since installing this update, I have noticed that -- a few minutes after startup -- when I am browsing the internet (I use Firefox 7.0.1) I hear an IE-style navigation "click" in the background. It is the default Vista sound that is common when navigating my PC and when navigating with Internet Explorer. This sound happens in the background when I am not even touching the mouse.

    I hope this is something benign like a Genuine Windows authenticity check, but I have not found anything on-line to confirm this. Does this sound to any one like a virus or anything?

    Iggy :)
