Some program on my new computer automatically makes a sound that kind of sounds like a broom sweeping every few minutes.

I can't figure out what it is. I always turn off optional sounds, and I've got the windows system sounds turned off. It doesn't seem related to anything in particular. It's one longer stroke followed by a shorter one....swiiiiiiish swish
It's not a popup ad or anything either, it happens even when Firefox is closed.
If I could mute all sounds except for what comes out of foobar I would, otherwise I'd like to track it down and STOP IT.
