    Random alarm sounds after Updates installed

    When I shut down last night there were Updates installing. Ever since today I have been getting random alarms sounds for no particular reason. At first it was every few seconds and now its every few minutes.

    I checked in Control Panel>Sound and the exact tone playing is Closing Program (Alarm 03). Alarm03.wav

    Anyone else have this?

    Very strange, i haven't come across this.

    If you keep an eye on Task Manager for a little while can you see anything starting/closing when the sound kicks in?

    That's what I'm doing right now. The only time I think I actually triggered the sound myself was when I just opened and closed the Task Manager. But it continues now about every 3-5 minutes randomly.
