Using Alt key for fine slider adjustments works in Windows, but gives unexpected system error sound.

Issue: Using Alt key for fine slider adjustments works in Windows, but gives system error sound.

1) Open Lightroom, select a photo and go into Develop mode.
2) Click on "Exposure" in the Develop Module and click the "+" key,  the exposure goes up by 0.1, as expected.
3) Click the "Alt" key and then "+".  The title "Tone" changes to "Reset Tone", a Windows warning sounds and the exposure is increased 0.02. The Windows warning sound is unexpected. Could the warning sound please be removed when using the Alt key for fine grained slider adjustments. 


(There is a workaround, which is less than idea.  To stop the Windows warning sounds, go to Sound, Open Volume Mixer and mute "System Sounds". There will be no warning sound when using the Alt key. However the users needs to remember to re-enable System sounds after using Lightroom).
