Windows 7: Close program sound for no reason

Close program sound for no reason

My PC makes a sound often for no apparent reason. I have determined it is the default (for my scheme) close program sound...

Any idea why it seems to randomly do this?

Could just be the same sound file for another thing than close sound. You can alter or disable windows sounds.

Just for the heck of it, change your startup sound. Want to make sure this is the same sound as what you're hearing:

Try a clean boot.

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

If no sounds, the add one thing back at a time. Process of elimination.

Hmmm sorry for the loooong delay

The problem is that BOINC Starts/Stops processes it is running when the PC is idle or in use.
