timberland snow boots women Annoying beeps in Internet Explorer
I am experiencing the EXACT same problem. I have been hearing that damned beep each time a new IE window is opened. And since about the same time that you began hearing it. Have you gotten any additional advice or had success in selectively removing this? I have reinstalled IE after removing it from the registry as suggested on m$ web site. I have surfed my registry obsessively. I also used ad aware and run the whole Norton shebang. Here are the symptoms: usually the beep is not heard when you launch IE the very first time. Afterwards, you will hear the system beep whenever you open a new IE window (by pressing Ctrl N) or start IE fresh. This only happens in IE and not in other browsers. The beep was gone! Then I went back to the startup manager and turn back groups of startup programs ( I had 26 of them). To make the story short, the beep was isolated to a program called AcctMgr actually the Password Manager in Norton System Works 2004. If you have it running, you can turn it off by right clicking its icon in the system tray and select exit (or something like that. Mine is a Chinese version so I don’t know the exact word used in the English version). Now start IE again; the beep will be gone. Now it’s nice to be so quiet. If you don’t want to use Startup Faster 2004, you can use msconfig built into Windows itself. The Norton program may not be the only program that will cause the beep but trouble shooting it should be similar. Good luck.

This gosh darn beep has been bothering me for about 2 months now. You may notice,
however, that the computer still beeps in certain instances. In order to shut this off you will need to take an additional step. Open Computer Management (right click the My Computer icon, and choose Manage), then click Device Manager. From the View menu, choose Show Hidden Devices. In the right hand pane, under Non Plug and Play Drivers, double click “Beep.” In the Beep Properties window that appears, choose choose “Do not use this device (disable)” from the drop down box under Device Usage.
