I recorded the sound with my phone's voice recorder, you can hear it here: https://clyp.it/kmcrujep . I haven't been able to catch it, but for a while there were also some creepy water sounds, like of a pond or gulping. When I mute the speakers, the audio goes silent, which according to the internet means it's probably NOT just picking up nearby radio transmissions?

I thought I got rid of this a couple weeks ago by running SpyBot (it removed some trivial-looking tracking software and the sound went away), but it's back. Rebooting does not do anything. I've now uninstalled Spybot and all other anti-virus programs other than MalwareBytes (and Windows Defender, which despite the log from SysInfo is currently disabled). I ran regular AND rootkit scans from Malware Bytes, and supposedly the computer is clean.

My cursor was stuttering intermittently last night, but other than that, there are no other symptoms. Any insights into what this could be and how to fix it?

UPDATE: I opened up the volume mixer, it was coming from listening to my computer microphone. When I unchecked "listen to this device" the sound went away. Still no idea on why it thinks it's hearing such creepy stuff, though - I turned off my bluetooth headphones and the noise still happened. So I'm not entirely assuaged.
