Default Insane Uncontrollable Beeping. HELP!

Hi all. Perhaps some of you guys can help me on this one. When ever I start up windows, I get this uncontrollable series of beeping. The beeping follows no particular pattern and it changes all the time. The following are a few examples of what it goes through.

1) I start up windows and it goes into the normal gui. Then all of a sudden I get all those beeps.

2) The beeps will end after about 15 seconds but will start to beep again when I minimize or maximize an application window.

3) I cannot scroll up or down with my mouse. If I try to do it with my keyboard, it constantly bumps it back to the top.

4) After about 1 hour all of this stops and everything is fine.

Seem puzzling? It does to me.

On a side note, I am not sure if this is directly related to this problem but the scroll weel on my mouse only works periodically.

I hope I have been clear as to my situation. Can anybody help? I would greatly appreciate the time and effort.

Windows is probably screwed up, try doing some repairs to the registry and some virus/spyware scans. If all else fails...format!
