    I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3 and the same clicking sound that you get when you open a folder "Start Navigation" is just randomly happening all the time. I went into the control panel and turned the "start navigation" sound off but it doesn't matter it keeps clicking. It's driving me insane, I'll be listening to music or surfing the web and all I'll just hear is "click, click.... click.. click..."

    ANY HELP would be GREAT Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply, but it doesn't have to do with internet explorer or the music players. I can exit out of everything and just leave my desktop up and you'll just hear sporadic clicks. I searched my computer for "start navigation" and found the actual .wav file (I opened it and played it on windows media player to much sure that was what I was hearing) and I completely deleted it off my harddrive. I put it in the recycling bin and emptied it. That didn't fix it though I'm still hearing random clicks and it's driving me insane!!! Anyone please help!! Thanks

    you may have a virus.
    do you have anti-virus installed?
    if your background on your desktop contains active content it may also be the source of the clicking noise
    there are many possibilities for why this may be happening though
