Windows 7: Hearing the Windows Shutdown sound everytime I open my browser...

Hearing the Windows Shutdown sound everytime I open my browser...

Anyone else had this problem? Everything on my computer is running smoothly, nothing else is wrong at all, but about 90% of the time when I open Google Chrome I hear the windows shutdown sound. I've had it happen only once on another browser, which was the Firefox beta version. I haven't had this happen in IE8 or Opera.

This is what richc46 wanted you to do. Go to System Sounds properties,

1. Right-click on Desktop and select Personalize.
2. Click on the link named “Sounds” at the bottom of the window.
