I think Bill is right. I disabled Cool Previews and the noise hasn't recurred.

If you have Cool Preview installed, try uninstalling it. That stopped the siren for me.

I want cool previews and don't want Flashblock....There must be a way to disable/remove this thing individually.....

Same problem here. I tried the solution suggested in a previous message, installing Flashblock, and that stopped the sound. And I'm betting it's from Google. They have a Pacman thing running on their page.
