It turns out the sounds were from Yahoo! Connection Manager which WinXP doesn't even need. Additionally, since I had X'd out CFD in ZoneAlarm, it wouldn't let Connection Manager talk to the internet. Every time I restarted the computer the CM said I had no dsl connection, even though it was connected. The CM does not have an uninstall file so removing it is problematic. At least there are no more sound effects.
Once you click on the "remember this setting" button, it never pops up again. You must remember you did this down the road at uninstall or reinstall times.

I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.
The sounds I thought were from ZoneAlarm appear to be from Yahoo! instead. I updated both and noticed the sound effects shortly after. Sorry for misleading you folks. Now if I can only figure out how to shut it off! ::)
I guess that explains why I never heard any sounds!!!! ;D ;D ;D
This should help with the sound adjustment:

Thanks Bob for the info on the Yahoo! Messenger preferences screen. I have the sounds box checked so that I get the noises when an email comes in, etc.
The noises I was hearing came from the Connection Manager. When I removed CM the sounds stopped. (note: CM also has a preferences box to click off on sound effects.)
I appreciate the help.
