WinMX has a chat component. Someone can send a command of &_____&, and it
will play the sound with that name on the computers of everyone who's
connected. It's one possible cause.

Actually I found the answer to my problem. Perhaps it may help some-one
else. I had created a very small partition on my removable HD and apparently
if System Restore can't allocate your selected percentage of HD space for
its backups it cuts off the SR process. After removing the SR monitoring
from my removable HD things have returned to normal.
I was checking some files on WinMX last night when a short burst of laughter
suddenly  sounded., then  five minutes later, some drum tapping sounded. for
a few seconds. What would be causing this?
