Hi, I'm running windows XP and it is making intermittent buzzing and ringing
sounds when I use IE and I think all microsoft programs.. Doesn't make
any sounds when I use Foxfire Browser and If I try to play CD it makes
constant noise and you can't even hear music.. If I restore to earlier date
it goes away but it seems everytime I do an upgrade it starts up again..
I've tryed many Spyware/Malware/Antivirus programs and nothing seems
to help. My main antivirus program is Mcafee.. Thanks for any suggestions.

Well, the last time it happened i restored to earlier date and buzzing problem
went away.. I just tried playing cd with real player and windows media player
and both make the buzzing noises... Buzzing starts as soon as i log on to
xp...doesn't make noise all the time, only when changing pages in IE and
playing cd's... I think anytime XP is trying to play a sound it buzzs and rings.
