My PC is making sounds?

My PC randomly produces sounds like the ones that the Recycle Bin produces when you empty it. Anyway, I looked online and apparently, it might be some kind of spyware..but I checked with ESET Smart Security 4 and SUPERAntiSpyware but it didnt find anything. If it's a virus...how do i get rid of it?

Another thing to try: turn off the sound scheme, and see if it continues. That tells you if it's windows or something else.

Ok, ran a FULL SCAN..with the program you told me and no threats were found. But, I still hear some sounds coming out of the speakers but this is the only thing i have open right now. (These sounds are not repetitive..they're just random..)

If so, then you have some device that is disconnecting and connecting on you.

If you have anything connected to your laptop, unplug it and see if you still hear the sound. If so, then it's one of your internal devices that's disconnecting and connecting. If not, then plug them back in one at a time and wait to see if you hear the sound again until you find the culprit.

In addition, open Device Manager to see if you see any device listed with an exclamation mark.

You'll probably need to reinstall the drivers for the device once you find out which one is doing this.

Odd that we just had a person on the board with the exact same problem yesterday. They discovered that their external drive wasn't fully plugged into the wall outlet (power) and so was being connected and disconnected at random times.

Did you open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) to see if you have any devices listed with an exclamation mark?
