pop up blocker sound after uninstall

  Nelson 14:22 15 Jan 2005

I downloaded the google tool bar sometime ago mainly for its pop up blocker and I soon disabled the annoying sound it played when stopping them. After SP2 came along with its built in pop up stopper I uninstalled the google one. I now get the same google sound when browsing using IE for no apparent reason. The IE pop up stopper sound is disabled and is totally different to the google one anyway, and IE does not indicate a pop up stopped when the sound plays. It appears totally randomly. I went to the google site to look for information and it quotes
'If the sound persists after you have unchecked 'Play a sound when blocking popups' in the 'Options' menu, please be assured that the sound you are hearing is not coming from the Google Toolbar.

It is likely that the sound you are hearing is coming from Internet
Explorer or an application that is running simultaneously, such as another Popup Blocker or cookie blocker.'
It seems strange to me that the sound only appeared after uninstalling google and they state '...please be assured that the sound you are hearing is not coming from the Google Toolbar'
Suspicious to me
