'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?

Have you tried switching the mouse?

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.
