My mom was on her computer today and a voice came on and said " You got company" then a door shut!!! :rolleyes2 what on earth could that be? She said that it's done it a couple of times, but Ive never heard it!

Any ideas? :confused3

Sounds like the instant message thing on aol :sunny:

You have a list of 'friends' and the voice comes on when they log onto, and then again when they sign out, of their aol instant message bit :)

I haven't explained that very well at all have I? :confused3
Sorry :rotfl:

If she was browseing the web it could of been a "Smiley Face" advert, there new smileys what speak and say weird things like "Hi,You've got mail" - It happened to me like every hour and then I realised it was just a advert lol...or it could be msn/aol/yahoo messanger

Oh cool, she was getting a bot freaked out by it! I might just sneakily turn the volume down on the computer - she won't realise it's doing it then!

Thanks for the replies! :thumbsup2

It is instant message on AOL. It freaked me out when I first heard it - I though someone was hacking into my computer! :rotfl2:

As another AOL user I can confirm it is the Instant Messenger audible alert she is hearing, no more, no less than that! :teeth:

Yep that's the AOL woman alright. She scares the life out of me sometimes when it's all quiet in my house and I've accidentally left the volume up loud!!
