Check for malware & trojans as well.

Could also be a bad audio driver

Try removing your sound card in device manager.

have a look at your sound settings.  You may have a sound set for some random windows execution.

Are you using a pop up blocker. I had a weird problem noise on a clients computer and it turned out they had a pop-up blocker enabled that gave out a noise every time it blocked something - one of those free annoying toolbars for IE.

Hi, (sorry for the bad english language, i'm french speaking)


Let me make thinks clear, please. The problem is not simply that i hear a noise but it is that I hear  4 ou 5 VERY LOUD SHOT GUN.

 So let's forget about problems with my speaker ou problems in the drivers. Maybe a malware & troyans as well, but how come no Antivirus or Anti-spyware/malware are able to detect it by a name or something...

Thans for help,

Marcheblanc

it may not be malware / spyware
your anti-mal / anti-spy may not be completely up to date
it may be a perfectly "normal" setting that has a sound attributed to it

have a look with Adaware from www.lavasoft.de
