Annoying Clicking In Vista

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have this annoying clicking noise all the time. It sounds like I'm clicking a link in IE, but it does it at reboot with out IE ever launching. It's been doing it for a few weeks but now I'm fed up with it.

My PC is our "TV". It's set up in the living room to the 1080p TV and I do everything on that. TV tuner card to DVR all our shows, downloaded movies, listen to music, etc. I have a nice 5.1 surround sound system hooked up via the Fiber Optic cable connection on my motherboard. And now, that clicking noise in surround sound is really pissing me off, as well as my dog.

Any words of wizdom?

I have avast, and Spybot S&D... they found nothing.

I think all versions of vista have that annoying click. My suggestion is to mute the sound when you aren't using your pc for gaming or as your tv. You could also try checking sounds in control panel. There might be an option there to mute the clicking.

any other suggestions? I really don't want to turn off my theme sounds. And I can't honestly assume that all versions of Vista have that annoying click that plays constantly even while watching a movie. It almost sounds like I have malware or somthing and it is causing a ton of popups, but I just don't see the pop ups.

This is one of the first things I turn off in Windows. Right-click the speaker icon in your system tray and select "Sounds". In the window that opens, scroll down to the "Windows Explorer" section and find the "Start Navigation" item under that. Click that and in the dropdown menu below, select "(None)".

Lastly, enjoy not hearing a retarded extra mouse click sound every time you click on something in Windows Explorer and IE!

As for why it's clicking randomly, I have no idea.

Thanks for the info, I guess I'll go ahead and do that when I get home this afternoon. I'm just a little worried that there may be somthing attacking my pc that Spybot & Avast didn't detect. + REP to all.
