    About every 10 min or so, i get a sound playing.

    sounds like a low note on a harpsichord.

    "bah baump"

    lol

    I've closed everything, rebooted, and it still randomly does it.

    i thought it was an ad on msn messenger or something but i can't narrow it down.

    anyone have a clue or is it happening to you also?


    win7 ultimate, legit :)

    actually, yeah.. mine sounds like its trying to open a program and getting denied. im not sure what it is because i havent divulged into it.however, i have a feeling its because of UAC. i have it turned off and i have a couple of auto-start programs that is "not trusted" mostly hardware monitoring stuff.. so that would be the issue.

    let you know what i have time to play with it and find out.
