    Hey Guys I love this WYSIWYG!! where did you get it and how can I get it?.... ok but on to the real question.
    I have recently found several worms, viruses, Trojans on my system and my network. They were due to some P2P downloading that was not being monitored properly. I've cleaned up the mess but my system still has one interesting little problem. On startup (only first boot) after the POST and windows loading has happened right after I login and windows starts to load, Two tones come from the computers internal speaker. One low and one high. The tones are very consistent and are being sent by something that windows is loading. My virus scanner (avast 4 Home) has not detected anything to suggest that this is a malicious program/script. I have completed all windows updates and have multiple firewalls and a gateway in place on my network. I have attempted to monitor network traffic during boot and don't see anything that raises any red flags. Please if you have heard of this or know of any reason my system would be doing this let me know. I would really appreciate an e-mail if you could but I will check the forum otherwise.

    My system Config is as follows:
    AMD 3000, DFI Mainboard
    1 GIG DDR 3200, 3 IDE HDD=400GB
    Soundblaster Audegy 2 LZ, NetGear Network card
    PNY Gforce 5700/256 Agp Card
    1 Cd Burner, 1 DVD burner
    ATX 450 W Case/pwr supply

    The "two tones" you describe are usually associated with a warning from the motherboard that there is a temperature issue with the CPU, or a fan failure. It can vary by BIOS type.
