    In case anyone else is looking for a solution....

    For weeks I had been plauged by an annoying sounds of a water drops
    (like a leaky faucet) most everytime a page was loading in MS Internet
    Explorer. For fear that IE had been highjacked I ran various spyware
    dectectors but was unable to locate the source of the sound.

    Turning off sounds in IE also did not remove the problem.

    SOLUTION
    Eventually, I discovered that the software PestPatrol was the culprit.
    By default it generates a "plop" sound anytime it blocks a cookie. To
    solve this, remove the CookieCrunch.wav file from the PestPatrol
    folder.

    Better solution: Remove PestPatrol from your system entirely, and never
    install that garbage again.
