Sounds 2 me like whoever you was playing with has dumped something onto your pc.

Wipe out any tempory files(use disk cleanup), check in your system sound properties to see if anythings been changed there.

Run a full scan with av software and anti spyware

When do you get the laugh? By that I mean what action have you taken that brings it on?

Start > Settings> Control Panel > Sounds and Audio
Open Sounds Tab. Check allthe events that bring on the laugh and untick the sound to be played.
