Windows 7: phantom alert sound

phantom alert sound

I am getting a ding/dong alert sound (very full with reverb/echo) at random moments while I am online.
I have checked everywhere I know for sounds, and Sound window doesn't have that sound in the list. I have set email at Comcast and on Live Mail to not notify me of incoming messages. The sound persists, occuring between 2-3 a minute to several in the course of an hour.
How can I find out what program or event is sending this alert? The only program running at all times (beside Security Essentials) is BackBlaze, backing up files as they are changed. An attempt to cause the sound by creating and deleting files didn't do anything.
This is starting to drive me nuts.

Download and run HijackThis (available from CNET and Trend Micro)

It is a program that will tell us everything that is running on your machine, including any malware. Select "Do a system scan and save a logfile file". It will open up a window with it's log. Paste it in a new post please. Maybe we can figure out the offending process.

If you need help doing this, please post again letting me/us know.

Thank you for the prompt reply.
I ran HijackThis, but it wouldn't give me anything more than a file with some comments. It said it couldn't write to hosts and gave me some information about manually setting up a 'hosts.' file. I haven't done that.
But you reminded me of Malwarebytes. For that I thank you. I got it and ran it. A bunch of entries from a games site which I had tried came up. I let Malwarebytes fix them, and then I removed a couple of other programs that I had at that point. I restored my registry from last week (I use Uniblue).
I heard the sound when I rebooted and loaded programs. At that point I removed a video viewer program (FLV-player) and rebooted.
I haven't heard the sound since.
I am suspecting it was the games site, but it's hard to tell.
I reviewed the event viewer logs (and cleaned them up while I was there) but didn't see anything in the timeframe when I heard the sound last night.
It might be gone, and I'm not about to reinstall the questionable programs to see if I can get it back.
But Malwarebytes really helped. And you! Thanks again.

I think you did absolutely the right thing, I agree you should not reinstall. Good diagnosis technique and good outcome.

Well, let's not be so hasty. Malwarebytes said it deleted two newly found malware programs, and the phantom chimes were back! I let Malwarebytes run again and it found the same two register entries again. I have deleted them again. Uniblue found them and a bunch of broken references to files associated with them and I cleared them from there as well.
Last report: the chimes are back. This is very annoying because as I sit here doing paperwork with no programs running, the computer chimes every now and then. Something is running. The only time I can predict it will happen is when I boot up - some program or other is starting and DING-DONG, there it is.
I looked at the starting services, but there are a lot of them, and some I am not familiar with so I don't want to start shutting them down willy nilly. Meanwhile, I finally set up HijackThis and got a report. It is below.
Anybody with insight will be appreciated. And so will the insight!

Quick update:
I have now removed Real Player (which I wasn't using anyway) and took it off Run list, killed all reference to it.
I also took Live Messinger off Run list since my son suggested it might be sound that someone has logged on.
I closed Skype for same reason.
Still get chimes.

Still chiming. I'm at my wits end with this. What could it be?

Another report:
Well, the phantom sound has been identified as one from process named TkBell (which I assume is Tinker Bell) and appears to be associated with Real Player. I removed Real Player, reinstalled it, and removed it all again. I also took the TkBell entry from the Run on startup and can no longer find it anywhere.
But it still pops out from time to time (particularly right after booting up) and I suspect it is a Windows sound that is used by other processes.
I have also disabled Live Messenger, which I nevered used and suspect using it for notifications or users logging in or out.
If anyone knows TkBell, and where it lives, I'd like to know. I am going to try and attach this sound (I have the wav file) to this point, but it that isn't supported I can e-mail it anyone who might be interested.
Thanks for all the help.

Just a quick post - Tkbell is part of Realplayer, and it doesn't give phantom sounds. It's an advertising component IIRC, but anytime you use Realplayer, it adds it back no matter if you disable it or not.

Who knows what is stands for as far as the name goes.

I'll review your Hijackthis list and give you maybe an idea possibly.

Is it like a really scratchy ding-dong type sound, like you would hear on an old radio, by any chance?

I attached a short wave of the TkBell wave file. The problem is I don't know what programs are using it. The process is no longer running and I have purged Real Player from my system (cleaning registry, start up lists, libraries, etc.) and I think I got 'em all.
Boy, some of these programs are hard to remove. And shared resources (like this wave file) are really hard to get rid of.

Don't see your attachment.

And again, Tkbell.exe is NOT a sound program! Just because something is spelled like bell, ding, etc. doesn't make it something that makes sounds...You are jumping to conclusions.

You are also doing things on your own that could do who knows what....

Try and upload your attachment again please, and stop running the Registry/File cleaners - they do more harm than good most of the time...
