  1. every time I log into my email God save the queen plays and repeats over and over
    I have an old amptron 2000 laptop with realteck audio. Never a problem till today.
    I ran spy bot, AVG, adaware,CC cleaner, looked over my shoulder, repeated including re-booting and still the refrain goes on. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Are you kidding? What email program are you using?

    It must be the new notification of email tone (been set by some funny person)
    These audio setups can be found in Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices then click on the Sound Tab

    Scroll through the list of Sounds until you find New Mail Notification and change it accordingly (ie to default)

    You may want to check all the sounds in there, and just default the lot ;)
