Making "donk" sound when pressing enter

I'm using Visual Studio 2008 and I have textboxes on a form. When I press "enter" on this form it performs a search which fills a datagridview. After the operation is complete it makes a "donk" sound. How can I get the "donk" sound to go away when you press enter while the active control is a textbox?

I don't have VS2008 on hand, but go to Control Panel->Sounds and audio devices->Sounds tab and see if visual studio has a section in the list of windows sounds. If it does you can customize / disable the sounds in that list.

Frosty,

Thanks for the response. But my compiled application makes this sound. Not just when Visual Studio is running.

What event is responding to the "Enter" on the form?

Click event of the "accept" button?  Enter event of a textbox?

Private Sub SearchForm_KeyDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown

        If TypeOf Me.ActiveControl Is TextBox And e.KeyCode = Keys.Return Then
            SearchList()
        Else
            If TypeOf Me.ActiveControl Is DataGridView And e.KeyCode = Keys.Return Then
                OpenRecordSearch()
            End If
        End If

    End Sub

This seems to work:
Private Sub SearchForm_KeyDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown
 
        If TypeOf Me.ActiveControl Is TextBox And e.KeyCode = Keys.Return Then
            e.SuppressKeyPress = True
            SearchList()
        Else
            If TypeOf Me.ActiveControl Is DataGridView And e.KeyCode = Keys.Return Then
                OpenRecordSearch()
            End If
        End If
 
    End Sub
