No, seriously! When I am logged on every few minutes my computer will make a whistling sound. Nothing changes on the screen, I am not mousing over an ad or anything. It doesn't happen when I am reading but not logged on, only when I am logged into my account.

 

It's not a big issue, but I'm really curious!

uhhhh.....okay...You got me?!  I have no idea. :lol 

 

I'll check with Huddler.  I have my sound on, but no whistling....

 

Anyone else having this issue?

It's an ad. I had to turn it off, too. It was driving me insane. It's the one with the soccer players - I think it's for allergy something or other.

Ahhh....I haven't gotten that ad, that might be why I've never heard it.

I've had the whistling too! It's really annoying. Good to know which ad it is!

If one of you can get a screen shot of the offending ad, that would be great.

Thanks! I look for that ad and see if I can turn it off.

So it was coming from here. Good to know. It was driving us a little batty last week, scared me and my son when it first happened because it was so loud.

If any of you can get a screen shot we can ask for it to go away. :)  I have yet to see it....

I updated my ad blocker and now none of them are showing up for me, so I haven't seen it since. I hope someone catches it!
