Windows 7: start navigation sound playing for no reason

start navigation sound playing for no reason

a couple days ago i started noticing that my laptop playins the "start navigation" sound randomly, sometimes even when im not on the PC.

i do not use IE, and firefox doesnt use that sound, so a page reloading itself isnt the cause, i even tried shutting down firefox and it keeps playing the sound every now and then.

i know how to disable sounds on the control panel, but i want to stop whatever is making the sound, not just make unhearable...

any of you know what may be the cause?

Check the Task Manager and see what programs and processes are running. Maybe you can determine what application is doing this. To access the Device manager, CTRL/ALT/DEL and when the menu comes up, click on Task Manager.

ADDED: Create a "Hijackthis" log and post it in the Security section. Someone there may be able to tell you whats happening.
