    Is there a new Firefox Virus
    Only happens in Firefox: When I open the browser, I get sounds like sirens from European police cars

    I ran McAfee - killed 2 hours - nothing found

    I re-installed Firefox - still there - aargh

    You aren't also using Avast, are you? I think that one makes a siren sound when it detects a threat to your computer.

    Also, I read somewhere that it could be something to do with overheating and is a warning from your BIOS.

    I just called the company that built my computer...

    It's Goog! (Which my browser defaults to)

    It's the 30th anniv of Pac-Man - even the Goog logo is a PacMan

    Just saved a $100 repair visit

    Ha Ha! I went there and heard the "siren" sound too. Too funny! I wonder how many calls have been made today.

    I heard that too, The sound from Google doesn't kick in until a few seconds.

    FYI, the google banner is the Pac Man game. If you wait you can actually play it! (Use your keyboard to control movement)

    They appear to default to muting their sound today - the little speaker icon in the lower left of the google-pacman logo - click it if the icon doesn't have an X on it. Bet their ears are very red from yesterday

    It's probably just me, but I'm not finding Google fun anymore.

    So is the 30th b-day of PacMan some sort of major historical milestone? The game is still showing up?? I love PacMan, but still?
