Hi there, I have recently bought a new laptop and there is a rather annoying waterdrop sound. I have muted system sounds (all of them) and have unchecked the pop-up blocker sound in IE - advice given in various forums. I have also uninstalled every app I have downloaded because some say any third party app or extention can cause this sound. At the end, without any third party gadget, with system sounds muted, popup blocker sound unchecked in IE, popupblocker unchecked in my browser (Firefox), I still hear this sound whether on the internet or not. Can somebody please tell me how I can get rid of this sound? I have also chatted with someone from MS who has gone through all this muting settings, but this also did not help. Thank you very much.
