Since I recently started using BitVise as my SSH client on Windows machines I became quickly irritated by the beeping every time I punched in an invalid key combination. Since I had all my Windows sounds muted I figured it must be coming from command prompt (which is what BitVise uses). After a few minutes of digging around I managed to find the solution.
Open up your command prompt and enter:
net stop beep
And that’s all there is to it!

Doesn’t appear to work in Windows XP
Works on my copies of Windows XP. Not sure why it wouldn’t work for you.
I had the same issue. The fix works on windows 10 as long as you run command prompt as administrator otherwise you’ll get a permission error whether your admin or not. For me it said it failed, however the beeping has stopped! 😀 Thanks I could only use Bitvise SSH with all sounds muted.
Thnx… it worked on windows 10
