    Unwanted repeating xylophone sound, how to turn off?

    I have a repeating periodic xylophone type sound that my computer keeps making. It's annoying and I can't seem to figure out how to turn it off. It doesn't seem to be associated with any particular program. The "Adjust System Volume" has the speakers on (so I can listen to music or videos) but the system sounds are turned off. Notifications are turned of. System sounds are set to "none". Any ideas?

    Could be some malware, I don't recall any such system sounds.

    After some trial and error, I figured out it was one of the programs. ITunes isn't playing well with my system. I now use the windows music app "Groove Music". No problems and it sounds better?
