Please download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forum and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.


After rebooting, run the computer for a while and tell us if you still get the audio prompt.

OK I did that.

It did not prompt me to reboot but I did anyway. I have not heard the audio prompt again, but even before using AdwCleaner and TFC, it never happened again anyway, only those first two times 15 minutes apart.

If it's relevant, here was the report after using TFC:

Getting user folders.

You had a lot of temporary files!!
Keep TFC and use it every few days. Always be sure to reboot, to ensure the files have been cleaned.
