    Windows 8 Installation Problem with "Close Program" Sound

    I have just installed Windows 8 Pro onto an existing Windows 7 Pro drive allowing dual boot. The problem is whenever Windows 8 is running I hear a sound every now and then. The sound is the "close program" default sound "ring07.wav.

    Why is this happening and how can I stop it?

    You could turn the sound off.
    Finding the programs shutting off might be difficult.

    I just turned the "close program" to "none", which stopped the sound but I wonder what was causing it.
