    Audio Alerts Disrupt Java Audio While Live Streaming


    When I live steam video in Windows 8/Chrome, using Adobe Flash, the audio portion is silenced each time I receive an audio prompt from my system. When I say "audio prompt" I mean a beep that I believe provides some sort of notification. The video continues, but all sound disappears for a few minutes when it then reappears. I have a dual boot system. The problem only exists in Windows 8. In Windows 7 I do not have this problem. My Chrome is fully updated, which means, I believe, that my Adobe Flash is also current. I disabled (or at least attempted to disable) audio alerts in Windows 8 and in Outlook 2007 and GMail (my email clients), but the audio alerts persist as do the disruptions of Java Live streaming audio. Any ideas or suggestions for fixing this problem - either by disabling all audio prompts or solving the problem of sound disruption in Java Live Streaming.

    The Problem Persists


    Thank you for the response. I tried to disable sounds as you described, but I still receive audible alerts (a beeping sound) and my audio is still disrupted when playing videos with Java. Is there something I am overlooking?

    an assumption only,if windows sounds are disable then it has to be another program making the sound ,one would think anyway ,its been years ,but i kind of remember this from the past ,and a person had same problem ,but i cant remember if it was a virus or just another program that was running all the time in the background, check your computer viruses
