The new 14.1 Photoshop CC update causes annoying beeps.

The recent update 14.1 causes annoying beeps when opening .psd files and completing other tasks (reported by other users). After uninstalling 14.1 and reinstalling 14.0, this fixed the problem. I believe this is a 14.1 bug.
The larger the file, the more beeps there are. An example of the beeping sound as well as other user input can be found here:

Do you have any third party plugins? Have you tried disabling them?
What about third party Flash panels?

I do not have any third party anything. It's the plain-jane install of Photoshop CC.

I just replied to the forum post also but I found that the new generator feature was causing this.

It seems to beep when it encounters non-standard characters in the layer names, hence more beeping the larger the file.

You can disable it Preferences> Plug-Ins and unchecked Enable generator. Untill Adobe issue a fix.

I renamed my layers and the beeping stopped. Sanity restored.

Hello everyone,
I also have this bug, and it's really anoying on certain files.
Disabling generator, and updating to 14.1.2 didn't change anything.

I'm impatiently waiting for a new photshop update...
