This is GETTING TO ME!

Okay here is my ordeal. I am running 2 pc's with a single monitor, keyboard,mouse etc.. here at home by a switch box. all i have to do is press the scroll lock to switch between them.

ANYWAY

I have SBC DSL so i am basically always connected. I have the firewall turned on and virus scan/adaware etc running but my problem is even when i am NOT on line and my speakers are always on i hear this annoying sound every minute or so through my speakers like someone is clicking the mouse button on a link or something!

Sure i can turn off the speakers but what is POSSIBLY making that noise?

Its all the time so i am getting in the habit of shutting down the computer at night! its random too. sometimes a single click, sometimes 2 clicks somewhat together but i am stumped and stupified!!!

Help me all knowing geekers more knowledgeable than I!

When you say "switch-box," you are refering to a KVM? Remove the KVM from the mix and see if the issue goes away. Are your speakers connected to the KVM as well? Which of the two PC's (or is it both) is the offender? Which make, model and rev of KVM do you have??

It could be your pop-up blocker or another program running in the background.

This is more than likely it, a program you have running in the background that refreshes every once in a while is probably causing it. Either that or you have a spyware issue and it's Internet Explorer trying to block those pop-ups.

This is from a quick google on the subject, but I've had to fix this for a client before. Hopefully this will fix the issue.

The Windows operating system often sets a default "click" sound (or it may be some other system sound such as a "ding") that plays every time you click a button or a frame is refreshed. Some of our pages use hidden frames reloading periodically to achieve certain functionality. You may have noticed this on other web sites as well.

Windows 95/98/2000: If you want to disable the clicking sound in MS Windows 95/98 then open the Start Menu / Settings / Control Panel and double click on the "Sounds and Multimedia" control panel. In this control panel, Choose the "Sounds: tab, scroll down in the "Sound Events" window until you reach "Windows Explorer" and under this you will find "Start Navigation". Click on "Start Navigation" and you will see a .wav file appear in the "Name:" box. This is the sound that is associated with the click sound. In the "Name:" drop down menu, select "(None)" and then hit "OK".

Windows NT: If you want to disable the clicking sound in MS Windows NT then open the Start Menu / Settings / Control Panel and double click on the "Sounds" control panel. In this control panel, Scroll down in the events window until you reach "Windows Explorer" and under this you will find "Start Navigation". Click on "Start Navigation" and you will see a .wav file appear in the "Name:" box. This is the sound that is associated with the click sound. In the "Name:" drop down menu, select "(None)" and then hit "OK".

This will set no sound to be played when you're navigating on the web. Keep in mind that this will remove the click sound from buttons and links on all web sites you visit until you set it back. This is a safe change to make and does not affect any other functionality of your Windows Explorer browser.

As far as the Nextel goes i eliminated that issue! That got old YEARS ago!

I ruled out the KVM, no wireless mouse or keyboard, and as far as ad/spy and IE dont i have to actually have the browser open on be "connected"with a window tab open for those issues?

The other computer DOES NOT do that and i am running the same software on it!

and its XP Pro O/S.

i guess i will disable the sounds but its very frustrating knowing knowing i did not find the culprit!

If the sound continues after disabling sound via software, you may have a MB that has some RF interferance emitting from it. I had a MB that made sound when it did disk activity.. sounded like a muffled mouse chirping. REALLY annoying.

Everyone Exaggerates

I've left something like the search window open and that dog that sits there and wags his tail occasionally I'll hear that. So go through the sound settings and disable the ones you don't need, especially anything web related. One test is simple. Reboot the machine and do nothing...do you hear a sound then? If so it could be a program loading at startup...otherwise some interference I guess.

That sound is setup in the sound scheme. Open up Control Panel -> Sounds & Audio Devices. Then click the Sounds tab. The wav file it's using is "start.wav" By default - it's the sound that's tied to "Start Navigation" underneath the Windows Explorer group. You can just change that to (None). Or the start.wav might be assigned to another task in that list.

I hate that clicking sound effect and it's one of the first things I disable when I get a freshly built PC at work.

Hopefully this will help you.......
