I know this is kinda silly, and isn't really tech, as such, but it's not really general discussion either. Some program or other, that I cannot identify, keeps making annoying little clicking noises. I thought it might be some kind of pop-up blocker or something, but if it is I fail to remember when, where and if I installed it. I've checked task manager for the culprit process, but there isn't an obviously labelled "clicknoise.exe"... help?

Can you link this event to a particular action you would be performing at the same time or does it happen somewhat randomly ?

I think it only happens when an internet browser is open, which is why I thought it was a pop-up blocker or something, initially.

Without some kind of error, or a clearer understanding of the noise, I don't think we can do much.

Just like what neverending stated, without a error i can't help you out. But I can offer you this note, It may be 2 programs that are running in task manager. If you can identify the 2 programs shut them down UNLESS THEY ARE A SYSTEM REQUIRED PROGRAM. Unlee you know what you are doing i would seriouly recommend that you do not shutdown a system program. Because shutting down the wrong one could corrupt the system and cause it to crash. Ok, I might be a little off but thats what I'm guessing and what i know.

It's Internet Explorer.

If you click the back button or similar, you'll hear a 'click' noise. Is this the same as what you're hearing before?

Download process explorer it is much more detailed then the microsoft process explorer and you should be able to pick out the culprit with process explorer.

First we have to establish whether it is a process or not. No use downloading software when not needed.

Word up, but it's one of those thigns that doesn't even have an installer it's so small.

Anyway guy that was having the problem, you need to find out if it was a process or something else. Turn your speakers and sound off and see if you still get that noise.
