    Hey guys,
    Every time Safari loads a new page it just randomly goes "Beep" and it's really frikin annoying. How do I make it stop? Also in my apple menu, Restart, Shut Down and log out show up twice... I think I have a virus or something... so yeah... anything?

    Sounds like you have VoiceOver turned on. You can turn it off in System Preferences --> Universal Access or by hitting Command-F5. (You may have to add in "fn" to that key combo if you have a laptop with the function keys configured to control hardware functions.)

    Have you installed some sort of Apple menu enhancer, such as FruitMenu? If you have, uninstall it.

    EDIT: Ninja'd, I didn't know about VoiceOver doing that to the Apple Menu.

    That's part for the Universal Access/VoiceOver feature...all of that stuff should go away when you turn it off.
