How to stop system sound when switching to/from Adobe Premiere Pro? (Win 7)

I have no idea what I did to cause this unless it started when I upgraded to 12.1.2 though I don't remember if that's when it did. When Pro is open, whenever I switch from it to another window/program/desktop or back again, it makes this annoying system sound, like the kind you would expect if you tried to perform an action and there was an error. Not a beep.

 

No other application on my computer makes that sound, including Adobe applications I have installed, and changing my computer's general system sounds does nothing. All of my audio drivers are up to date.

 

Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere buried in Pro that affects system sounds?

Seems to be a wried issues...also win 7 is old and even Adobe recommends windows 10 with Premiere Pro CC 2018 - https://helpx.adobe.com/in/premiere-pro/system-requirements/earlier-versions.html

I would suggest you resetting the Premiere Pro preferences as follow -

To reset preferences and plug-in cache at the same time, hold down Shift-Alt (Windows) or Shift-Option (Mac OS)while the application is starting.

Thanks! I know Win 7 is old. I have a ton of art software I use that Windows 10 screws up so until I can afford a separate computer to run Windows 10 on, I'm using 7. Resetting my preferences didn't work but I tried updating the audio drivers again. The update failed since it was an incompatible driver and yet somehow the noise stopped so go figure lol Thanks!

I'm having a similar issue while trying to test Premiere Pro 15.1

When I hit play I hear a piano chime.  I'm thinking it's one of the system sounds.  

I'm running Windows 10 PRO v1909

I tried resetting prefs and Plug-in cache which did not help.  I can run Premiere Pro 2020 without any issues.

Any suggestions?

 

TY!
