Windows 7: IE8 doesn't stop all popups --help please

IE8 doesn't stop all popups --help please

Can't help on the problem but can add to it. On some sites, when first galloping in, I get this weird and wonderful noise. It sounds like someone emitting an unearthly howl when they find out Jeopardy came on at 7PM instead of 7:30PM.

It only comes up on certain sites. I've looked through all the various sounds in the Control Panel and there's nothing there that comes close to this. I've unchecked "play a sound when popup is blocked" in the Popup Settings, and no way does this stop it.

I've tried the uncheck sounds in the Options / Multimedia and this does nothing to alleviate this grief. I almost ran and got the Fire Extinguisher the first time I heard it, for I thought this computer was going to burst into a ball of flames. It didn't though.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Word process doesn't stop
Why does MS Word not shut down properly? This happens occasionally and, I think, haphazardly. I go into task manager and even though I've closed the program, the Winword file remains, thus preventing my deleting Word's temp files.:mad: Thanks.
