    Critical Stop sound every hour!

    While I'm posting I might as well throw this one out there.
    For a while now, every single computer on our Curriculum network makes the Critical Stop sound about 5 times in quick succession on the hour, every hour.
    I've checked several times and there's no programs running every hour.
    I've just no idea.

    Any suggestions?

    Checked scheduled tasks to make sure nothing has been set to run hourly?
