Windows 7: start navigation sound (continuation from Sound & Audio)

29 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7

i've noticed something...

couldnt it be WLMessenger? i have the WLM sounds disabled but when it logs in it makes that same sound... i believe it is when it loads the ads on the bottom...i think it could be that

EDIT: i found it. it is from msn today.

somehow its an WLM error. when i login into WLM it should open MSN today but it doesnt, however the window is somehow open and reloading every now and then on background, i just cant see it.

reinstalling WLM

Glad you found the probable program that's launching

I wasn't trying to say you definitely had a virus, but it doesn't hurt to eliminate the possibilities.

It could be anything that's launching, could be Live doing a background update, could be the Google toolbar...could be a number of things.

I hope WLMessenger to be the culprit. If it doesn't, then it's time to look at all the processes running and once you hear the sound, see if any new process has launched.
