Sound of door creeking open, NOT AIM/Yahoo or IM related.

Specs: Windows XP SP3, Intel Dual Core 2.4ghz
All up there in the title. I do not have AIM or Yahoo messenger (or any messenger except for Skype) installed on this computer. I heard the noise while installing Windows updates. I'm using XP SP3.

I went through every single assorted windows sounds in control panel and none of them make anything resembling this noise.

Filed under spyware because I can't imagine what else it could be. Avast detects nothing though.

could be in microsoft word.

I heard the noise while installing Windows updates
Only the one time or all the time?

May as well try a quick scan with Malwarebytes and fix all it finds

Your answer confuses me, I do not have AIM, like I've stated, which makes it seem all the more threatening considering the cause is then unknown.

I said that BECAUSE AIM makes that sound when people come and go.

If you use the desktop theme "Mystery" it had the creeking door in it.

in the control panel "display" the first tab is themes....see what it is set to. If this only happened once no biggie....does it happen more often?
