Please explain further. Like you turn your pc on and it starts beeping? or what. and exactly when did this problem start happening? Did you recently install somthing before this problem started happening? Also, exactly what are the specs of your computer? (make/model number, etc)?

I`ve installed a few programs from microsofts website, but have uninstall it in order to get rid of te problem, except for IE8 Beta what I am using now
Specs:
Fabrication: ACER
Windows XP Pro
Version 2002
SP2
Intel R Pentium 4
CPU 2.60 Ghz
0,99 Ram
80 Gb HDrive
Also a 20 digit nr on Properties My Computer/Desktop, dont know if you need that!!!
The problem started about a day after I`ve done the ib=nstalations of the programs that I get id of in the meantime, at first the beeping sound,
and the computer crashes a few times then.
Dont know what I`ve done, but the problem then seems to be solved for a day or 2, and then start all of a sudden again, this time without crashing, but now it never goes away.
Begin as soon as I start up, and will only go away after I`ve shut down, however there are times when it will go away for 3-5 seconds, for instance when I wait for a video on ex. youtube to download.

There is a good chance it is an alarm siren, telling that your cpu is overheating. Some motherboards let the alarm go off when the cpu is really hot. ASUS motherboards usually. Download some free cpu temp reading software and post how hot yours is running.

Try Speedfan.

In Killbox, did you browse your way correctly to the file that you want to delete? Did you ever had a chance to do that or did killbox failed even before you started browsing.

If you know exactly what you have to delete but the problem is with Killbox, you can try Unlocker (a link in the list below).
