Why is my computer making funny noises?


Do I have a Virus?

Sometimes when I am online I hear a weired sound. It sounds like a door opening and then music. It is always the same sound and the same music.

I have run several anti-virus programs and all say that my computer is not infected. Am I going crazy

Please help me.

What's your Internet Service Provider? Some ISPs use sounds to inform you of buddies entering and leaving the Internet For example, AOL uses the sound of a door creaking open and slamming close to signal buddies signing on or off You could turn down the volume or mute the sounds by selecting Sound and Audio Devices in Control Panel.
