Computer Making Random Mouse Clicking Sounds and Other Random Sounds HJT Included

Q: Computer Making Random Mouse Clicking Sounds and Other Random Sounds HJT Included

Hi I am new here.

I am running Win XP Home SP2 and recently my computer has been making random background noises. Its like an IE7 mouse click. Sometimes it plays ads in the background and sometimes for long periods of time. I have had no other programs open that have advertisements built into at the time. I have AVG Free and it has decteted several trojans. So I stumped upto this point.

here is my HJT Log.

Mind you I did not have IE7 running at the time but HJT picked it up. Not sure... Anyways

Preferred Solution: Computer Making Random Mouse Clicking Sounds and Other Random Sounds HJT Included

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,I have recently begun to experience some problems. I have seen people experiencing similar problems on these forums so thought this would be the best place to pose. These are the problems in a nutshell:- Every now and then the 'clicking' sound that you get when you click a link or enter a folder will keep repeating itself for about 7-8 clicks- I use Google Chrome, however, random pop-ups keep appearing in an Internet Explorer window- When using Google Chrome, certain features will randomly disable themselves (eg. Youtube videos will say I am missing a plug-in)- When searching on Google, certain links will navigate me to an ad page rather than the correct websiteI ran the scans as suggested in the Preparation Guide and these are the logs I have.

Hey, I've been noticing at random times I will hear the the mouse-click sound from my speakers. I've done a full McAfee Security scan and it doesn't look like I have any viruses or spyware.

Does anyone know about this problem or how to fix it?

These aren't frequent but I do hear them from time to time. I did a MalwareBytes scan a couple weeks ago and no problem showed up then.

A:Random mouse clicking sounds from speakers

Is this problem on a certain page/site?

I use Juno some times and it is always clicking, but they are ads that have been blocked.

I need help!

I'm ok with computers, but I am having some issues. To anyone who posts a response: please answer in the simplest terms you can! I want to fix this the right way without doing anymore damage.

I have a relatively Toshiba Satellite laptop (I bought it in April) and run Windows Vista Basic - I also browse the internet with Firefox, if that makes any difference. Nearly a week ago I started getting messages saying "b.exe has stopped working". I have also seen "c.exe has stopped working" but that only happened once or twice and I haven't seen it since. I have also noticed that my laptop will make clicking sounds and then start playing random noises like interviews, music, etc. It almost sounds like someone has a YouTube playlist running in the background. I am also getting a lot of popups.
I use Trend Micro and I also downloaded CCleaner, which I try to use about once a week. I have done full system scans, run a disk clean, defragged and emptied my cache and nothing seems to work to get rid of the noises.
I downloaded Malwarebytes and am running a full system scan as we speak and so far it has found 3 infected objects, though I can't look at what they are yet (the scan is not finished).
I have been trying to research fixes to my problem, but a lot of what I read is harder for me to understand because I don't know computers too well. I don't want to download something else that will make my problem worse or delete somethin... Read more

For a while now, I've been hearing random explorer clicking sounds coming from my computer. This happens about every other day, and only occurs shortly after I'm able to connect to the internet. The clicks tend to be clustered together, about 5 seconds apart, and there are about 5 clicks total.

As one might imagine, this can be quite annoying. Of course, I could take the easy way out and simply disable the clicking noise. But I want to get to the root of the problem and figure out what exactly is triggering these clicks. Could it be the result of an incomplete piece of malware?

In addition to the three required log files (Attach.txt, DDS.txt, and Ark.txt), I've also attached a log and and a screen shot from TCPView, which monitors all the processes that are using the TCP/IP protocol. (The screen shot only contains the explorer.exe entries, since that was the process triggering the clicking sound. Also, the log is older than the screen shot).

Hi guys

You know the sound your navigating through explorer or the internet, that *click* sound. Well I keep randomly hearing that, even if I am watching a movie on my pc (not touching the pc), so something on my PC is automatically doing it. I think it could be a virus, as I was googling "random clicking sounds", I was led to a forum where someone had the same problem and he used Combofix, I read the bleeping computer guide for Combofix and saw that you analyze the logs too.

Would it be ok if I posted my log here for you to analyze and tell me if I do have anything dodgy running, that may cause this problem?

Thanks

I have seen this problem on past post (now closed) but there never seem to be a real answer to the issue (many solutions offered).
I do seem to have a trojan or warm that is causing this security issue. I have used all the top popular removal and scan tools but nothing finds this security threat. Most deep (full) scans take about 4-6 hours on my system. The problem is using large sections of memory and I believe the security threat may have limited access to my system (unconfirmed)

Please if someone has direct and specific information on this I would greatly appreciate it.

ISSUE: random sounds, clicking, voices, music, occasionally a pop-up ad even if a browser is not launched. The "clicking" does take focus away from writing in any document, (such as writing a new email) or browser.

I just got new Logitech speakers, but while playing video games, the speaker makes random beeping noises and random times. I don't have this problem while using the built in speakers in the monitor or headphones, just with the new speakers that I bought. I don't think it is my cellphone since it is nowhere near my speakers and it beeps even when im not getting calls or text messages. Im not using the speakers anymore till someone can help me resolve this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

A:Speakers making random sounds

How are these speakers hooked up to the computer? Right into the sound card audio out jack?

I am not exactly sure what interference would come across the speakers as a beep. Is beep the same as a car horn beep?

What is the model number of these Logitech speaker?

If they are powered by an AC power adapter, are you plugging that into a source that is also connected to a device that is causing stray RF interference?

Hi Everyone,This is the first time I am posting in this forum. I think I am infected with something. I don't know how I got it and I don't know how to remove it. It keeps playing random clicks, the same ones that play when a link is clicked in a browser. Sometimes, ad audio plays in the background especially the one saying "Congratulations, you've won!". The laptop is running really slow as well especially while browsing the web. I ran DDS.scr and got the two text files. I tried running gmer.exe as instructed in the steps but after it would finish scanning and I would try to save the report the computer would hang and I would have to manually restart, so I don't have that report.

Ugh, I'm so disappointed. I just got a new laptop yesterday and just today it's started making clicking noises, making one click about every 5 seconds. It'll go on for about 10 minutes then stop for awhile and then start again. From what I Googled, people are saying that this usually means the hard drive is going out. Is this true?

Should I send the computer back and exchange for a new one?

Well you already have Symantec which is Norton which claims to have in its program protection to the adclicker, you also have Trend micro, personally I don&#8217;t think you need both, way to many tool bars for my liking but then that is personal choice, you also have spybot going and teatimer, personally I only use this when i want, as in not running the program all the time, I don&#8217;t have it running in the back ground and never use teatimer it makes your boot up way to long, but then that is personal choice also but with two antivirus, you are bound to have conflicts as to the music and sounds I have never heard of that before, I would check your settings on any audio programs.

I really, really need advice on this ASAP...

Got registry missing/corrupted error message.

Can't boot in safe mode because when I reach desktop, Windows help file tries to load and hard-drive makes staccato scratching sound (4 scratches then a click) ad infinitum, locking everything up.

Ran scanreg /restore. Hard-drive makes staccato scratching sound then scanreg /restore locks up and re-displays command prompt above program title.

Can't run scanreg /fix, because after I "Minimum Boot" from my ME startup floppy, right after the registry appears to have been rebuilt, the harddrive starts that staccato scratching thing, locks up the program, and then up pops a command prompt again.

Can't load only "Himem.sys" (per Knowledge Base article 228779), because when I do a step-by-step confirmation boot, Himem.sys doesn't even show up as a loading option.

When I run scandisk, it says 32,768 byes on my HD might be lost or damaged (probably my registry).

Tested four 64MB memory sticks (256MB) with simmtester. Everything passed.

Can't run system restore, cuz after I edit system .ini file for progman shell and restart, harddrive starts that staccato scratching thing.

The scratching thing has happened sporadically ever since I got this computer (IBM HD bought at convention new, custom built machine), but never locked up my OS.

Restored shell line back to explorer in .ini file & now I just might throw my computer out the nearest wind... Read more

This has actually only happened one time. But, my computer started playing the beginning of the ghostbusters movie. It played the whole theme song after that and then continued with dialog and sounds. I don't even have this movie on my computer. I opened task manager and didn't see anything suspicious (but what do I know?). It may have been an ad...but I didn't see one on the page I was on.

Hi, I have 2 issues and not sure if they are related.
1. I am getting random music and sound coming through my laptop, i am not running any programs and even happens when my laptop is closed. its a different sound every time, sometimes traffic, sometimes a girl humming and sometimes like someone chatting on a website and once even sounded like porn. It lasts for about 5 mins.
2. At the same time the sounds started i also started getting problems with IE, error pops up on random pages saying internet explorer has stopped working and then closes the program. It happens more frequent when i try to search why the random sound keeps happening or when i go to tech support sites like this one and try to read posts.

This is the first time i have posted and not sure on what details you need, i did download DDS, and can do that if you require.

I don't know if your problem is malware related or not, but it sure sounds like it. So let's take a look and see.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. Open up the result.txt file created. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it back here. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless. Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.

I have 2 issues that have shown up on my PC.

HJT Log follows the description of both issues.

I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad R61i (7732/A12), Vista Ultimate w/SP2, 2GB RAM. Security is Windows Live Onecare. All O/S patches up-to-date.

Issue 1: Random Sound

Periodically the system will start playing random sounds. The sounds have been song clips, or synthesized cat meows. Not files from my computer (heaven forbid!). If I close my browser (Firefox 3.0.11), the sounds will stop. I have already checked Firefox add-ons, which are: "Down Them All", "Move Media Player" and "Speed Dial". All are up-to-date.

Issue 2: Random "lock computer and go to login screen"

If I leave my computer for a short time (less than 5 minutes) periodically the system will lock the computer and go to the login screen.

I am not talking about a system / browser / application lock-up.
I am talking about the system leaving the user logged in, but going to the login screen. To get a visual of what I am talking about, press <CTRL><ALT><DELETE> and select "Lock This Computer" (or press windows-L).

Screen saver is set to "None".
Current power plan is "Timers off (Presentation)"

If I have not been specific enough, I greatly apologize.

I am very grateful to all of you who volunteer to help.

Hey guys.My hard drive has been making weird noises of late, and I'm getting quite worried. When the computer is on, it makes a single clicking sound, and everything freezes for a second and then everything works again. This happens randomly. It has started doing this more often now, and I really don't want to end up with a busted hard drive. I have a HDX 18t laptop with a 500gb hard drive. I'm not too sure if they are 2x320 or just 1x500. But what I do know is that they are making weird noises and everything freezes for a brief second immediately after the noise. My laptop is pretty new. About 4 months old now. So still well under warranty. I ran the BIOS hard drive test (the complete long one) but it did not show a problem with the hard drive. I read somewhere that HP will not replace the hard drive if this test comes out clear. But if the tests came out clear whats with the clicking noise and the freezing?? I hope someone can offer some insight.Thanks!

Today, these random sounds started playing from my computer. It sounds like a sound that you'd get when you have a new notification or an alert sound. I dont really know what it is, and theres no suspicious processes in the task manager. I checked all open websites and I dont have any alerts/notifications.

I tried a google search of this problem but I am still experiencing issues.

My computer will occasionally play random sounds and audio. Like just 5 minutes ago i heard half a commerical about i dont even know what because it cuts off out of nowhere. I attached a log of all my running processes in case anyone can find something that does not belong. I know it is not any IM client because i know what they sound like and i dont have an IM client running anyway.

Any help you can give me is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi guys!

I am really a computer noob, and I really need help to figure out the problem I have with my laptop.
Beginning yesterday, my computer suddenly plays random sounds that I think come up from some sort of advertisement or radio dialogues, some last for a few second, some lasts for about 3 minutes or so.
And I am using the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse, and notice my mouse automatically go from click-to-click scroll mode to free spin scroll mode, which I think indicating that my laptop opened a few invisible advertisements.
I try to run spyware and antivirus using PC Tools Spyware Doctor + Antivirus, and everytime I cleaned a few Adware.Advertising and Application.TrackingCookies, when I run yet another scan a few minutes after, I find the same infections again and again.

Can somebody tell me what happened and how I can solve this problem?
Thank you!

It started as a little pop-up ballon in the task bar with a picture of a red shield (similar to McAfee) with a white "X" in it with a message of "You have a security problem!" If you click on the icon to get more information, nothing happens.
Then I started to get "Alerts". The boxes that pop up and you can't click on anything else and those have "Alert" in the top bar and have a message of "You have a security problem! Do you want to scan your computer for viruses?" and Yes or No boxes. I have not selected "Yes" at all so I don't know what that would do.
Then all the other pop ups started and most of them have the fake virus scans on them but some are for other things. These are all IE based but I only ever use Firefox.
Lastly, I now have random audio blurbs play in the background. Even when no windows are open things will start playing like, "Click here to claim your free iPod", or the audio to a movie preview and now it's even gotten to the point where I hear what seems like a foreign tv show.

About a month after I got an HP Pavilion laptop running Windows Vista it started making periodic sounds. 2 or 3 times a day the computer announces "I am French". I can't figure out any keystrokes or other activity that would generate it. It also makes a couple of nonsense sounds (like vroom) with less frequency.

It doesn't seem to be causing any problems on the computer and endless virus and other mal-ware searches don't pick up anything but I worry that something is burried in there. The laptop is about 5 months old.

Has anyone run into something similar or have suggestions on where to look? I really REALLY don't want to reformat the drive and re-install the operation system.

thank you.

Hello,

your problem is not in firefox.... it is most likely in the website ads that you visit ;). Judging by the sounds... and that it is on both computers will looking at websites that is. What do you do...
1. turn off the speakers
2. run ur pc over with a truck
3. kill all add companies

OR

4. the smart thing, go get firefox add ons that disable ads, then if u hear it make ad-block kill it off for you.

About 2 weeks ago, I started hearing random sounds from my speakers/headphones.

At fiirst there was only one sound, something that resembles a guitar solo, the only connection I could make was that I recently bought GTA4 and that required me to install Rockstar Social Club, I made the connection because it was a guitar solo.. and Rockstar being... rockstar. However, I have tried closing the client and waited, and yet the sounds still play.

The sounds play at completely random intervals, but it seems to be occuring more and more frequently. Not only that, since the first sound, other sounds have been introduced. The second sound was something that resembled a man talking/laughing.

Then after a week or so, which became yesterday, I heard a new sound which was quite scary. It was a sound a of a young girl humming a tune.

Today, I yet again experienced a new sound, something that sounds like a startup sound for a program that was only 1-2 seconds long and resembled a piano.

I have tried researching the problem by googling "random sounds", and I found a lot of results, while they were similar, they did not appear to be the right one.

I even saw one on this forum, which led me to post.

Others who have experienced random sounds had bad processes that I can't seem to find, or files in system32 folder which I can't seem to find.

Here is the info the forum required me to get.

So far I think I've encountered the following on my computer and removed (or have I?) most of them:

Security Tool, Windows Police Pro, AntiVirus Pro 2010, feedwater.com stuff, cleantraffic1.com, AntiVirus Plus

Right now I only occasionally get pop-ups about working at home with Google, theres also random warning noises that happen, but no windows pop up. As mentioned in the Topic, I cant run Windows Media player or dds.scr. I frequently run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it finds new infections even when I flip the switch to disable my wireless connection, so that must mean there's an infection in there and I kind of suppress it, but not kill it am I right? I update it right before I do a scan also.

I've used, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (as mentioned), Windows Defender, Windows Malware Removal Tool, and maybe something else.

I have a HiJackThis log and a RootRepeal log, but as mentioned DDS doesnt want to run.

Thanks for any help in advance. I've tried my best to not annoy anyone on any forums, but I've come to the point I just can't get it all out without help.
