Unwanted Sounds

Discussion in 'Microsoft Office' started by Ed O'Brien, Jan 11, 2010.

    Windows Vista Home Premium. IE7. Office 2007

    Peculiar sounds annoy me so I have set 'Sounds' to virtually nil using
    Control Panel/Sounds and disabling all the Windows boings and beeps and
    saved the setting as "My own".

    However, I keep getting the odd boing, burp and beep, such as when closing a
    programme after pasting something and closing E7.

    Is there somewhere else I should look to stop these irritants?

    TIA or any help.

    Hi,
    Look at programs (security, privacy, etc) which load at startup and run in
    the background. Look in the System Tray for these programs and run MSCONFIG
    ((Start > Run> (type in) msconfig)) > Startup tab. Check these programs for
    options to make a sound when a particular action occurs.

    Hope this helps,
    Don

    Thanks, Don.

    I have set Startup for just a small hand-full of programmes, none of which
    make a sound. I also tested each sound in "Sound" to find the most
    irritating 'boing' and searched for *.wav and checked out all of those -
    nearly 1,000 - also without finding the culprits!

    Any other suggestions will be gratefully accepted.

    Ed

    You can use the Sysinternals utility Process Monitor to try and track down
    the process that is emitting the sound.

    Sorry to be so long coming back, Donald.

    I have downloaded Process Monitor and at 64% and around 500,000 entries into
    it it looks like being another half hour to run. I really want to get rid of
    these noises, but frankly, how am I to locate a noise? How would you appoach
    it?

    If you have a certain set of sequences that produces the unknown sound on
    your machine, then start Process Monitor and go through that sequence.

    Once you've produced the sound, then stop capturing in Process Monitor by
    hitting CTRL + E and it will stop capturing events.

    Then use the search function in Process Monitor(Edit||Find) to search for
    any reference the .wav file in the captured events.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell

    Well, Donald, I tried all processes several times, including purposely
    creating a sound but found no reference to a .wav file. I tried searching
    *.wav. in all processes and got no results in any. I guess individual sound
    files are not logged as such. Using Clipmate I found the file and the usual
    reference, \blobtxt.idx : \blobblob.idx : \blobblob.blb, which are the
    storing of data, yet nowhere does it refer to the "bop!" one gets when
    copying.

    Any suggestions?

    Ed

    Don't use the wild card(*) in you search criteria, just search for .wav
    only.

    Hi, Donald.

    Running Pocess Manager only found one file in Sysem32.

    Having now checked out every .wav file I can find - about 1,000 - I have
    still not found the culprits. Describing a noise is a bit like trying to
    describe a colour but the annoying noise is a bit like a warship's horn but
    sinking as apposed to rising. eeeeeeeeeYum!!

    Do you know of any other file extension Windows, or Office, for that matter,
    uses to liven things up?

    Ed

    If the sound is being generated by the Windows Operating System is could
    show up in Process Manager under several different processes depending on
    how the sound is being generated. Such processes as, winlogon.exe,
    Rundll32.exe, wmplayer.exe...etc.

    For example if you set the wave file "Windows XP Default.wav" as the default
    sound for "Close Program" in the Control Panel, and then close a program
    while running Process Manager, you would see an entry in Process Manager
    like this:

    [winlogon.exe QueryOpen C:/WINDOWS\Media\Windows XP Default.wav SUCCESS]

    If you simply double clicked on that file "Windows XP Default.wav" to open
    it up in Windows Media Player, you would see an entry in Process Manager
    that looked like this:

    [wmplayer.exe ReadFile C:/WINDOWS\Media\Windows XP Default.wav SUCCESS]

    Notice that in both examples Process Manager shows the Process Name that is
    executing the sound file, and lists the Path to the wave file that is being
    executed.

    Sorry I don't have anything else to offer with regard to this issue.
