Vista plays the default beep ("windows ding.wav") at odd times: when i navigate the mail box in aol (any time i click an email (just highlight not open) or navigate within the mailbox)
or when i run the program Eraser and click on a file scheduled to be erased.
Aol does not have a sound effect tab just for navigating mail so it's not a matter of removing a sound theme; if i delete windows ding.wav then aol and Eraser make my pc speaker beep. ??
A little more info: "windows ding.wav" is the sound that's played when you move the volume slider up and down - if i delete it then move the slider there is no sound, not even from the pc speaker - i can stop all this by editing the wav volume to zero but why do aol mail and eraser play a file whenever i click on something when they arent suppose to have sounds anyway? yes, the explorer "start navigation" sound is disabled.
