have what i think is a basic problem, but i just can't find where to fix it..
evrytime i visit a page in internet explorer that has an advert, it makes a 'bubble sound'. i want to switch it off, as everytime the ad changes the sound goes again, and it happens in every window i have open (eg aim buddy list etc). sound does not seem to exist via ctrl panel / sounds, nor in internet explorer / tools / options.

it's very annoying - can someone help me find where to disable

It may be a programme installed on your pc that you don't want.  Try running spyware to see if that does the trick.

Sounds can still come trough the PC speaker. Even when you have instructed Windows to never load sounds, the PC speaker can still give noise.

If you are using Windows 2000 or XP, go into device manager, select the "Show hidden devices" option, go to "non plug and play device" find that device named "Beep" and set it to disabled.
That kills the PC speaker in Windows as well. It won't harm the speaker for BIOS errors.
