    'Mouse click' sound keeps randomly happening...

    Hello. Weird issue...

    A PC in our school (XP) keeps making the 'mouse click' sound that happens when you open a folder or click a link on the internet. Thing is- it does it when nothing is open and there is no user activity...! Really weird.

    Never encountered this issue before- anyone else?

    It's almost like there's a ghost opening folders and clicking links in the background!

    Checked the task manager and can't see anything suspicious. Virus software up-to-date.

    Hope you can help!

    I had this problem on my computer, did a virus scan and found nothing... It seems to have stopped now but i never found out what was causing it.

    check the sound scheme maybe some one has linked the sound to something automatic?

    Not a website with a auto refresh meta tag refreshing in a switched session or something? Have you tried restarting the machine and seeing if it goes away?

    I've seen the same problems with Smartboards. You hear the sound of a USB device being disconnected then re-connected. I put it down to a wiring problem and without re-wiring, there isn't much more I could do!

    I agree. Weird results like this often come when the mouse is starting to pack up.

    A restart doesn't seem to make any difference...it's very odd. I'm going to check the sound scheme now to see if that may be the problem.

    I'll give that a try as well but i don't see how that can make the sound as the mouse isn't clicking anything...i'll try it though.
