Windows 7: Does WIN 7 emit chime alerts?

Does WIN 7 emit chime alerts?

Since finally switching to Windows 7 x64 about a week ago, I have these intermitent annoying chimes, like alerts. I have uninstalled just about everything on the PC and the likely suspects are narrowed down to Windows 7 & a gremlin.

For instance, The action Center has no current alerts. But deeper inside the Action center there are some notes. e.g. UAC is set to off. Will things like this (UAC) set off chime alerts??

Does WIN 7 emit chime alerts? If "YES" can I 'nuke' the offending dll or registry file or whatever to end this misery?

You can disable all Windows audio notifications (or specific ones) in the Sound Panel.

Got to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally Sound. In the Sound Panel, click on the Sounds tab.

Yee-ha. At last we're making headway. It's the "exclamation" sound. But how do I 'kill' just it? And by the way, what would mostly likely be generating the alert?

Do a google search for "exclamation sound in Windows" and you will get a lot of info and potentially what is causing it.
