Windows 7: Strange windows clicking/ad sound from system

Strange windows clicking/ad sound from system

Every 2 hours or so, there would be a mysterious windows 7 clicking sound coming from the system sound, the way to describe the sound would be whenever you browse through your C: drive, every folder you access will have the default window click sound depending on the theme you're using.

It starts off with my cursor doing the refresh/loading animation and a few seconds later it produces the sound, is this some sort of trojan/adware/keylogger?

I really need help here.

Thank you.

Sounds like some type of spyware/malware.
Run a full scan with Malwarebytes ASAP.

Repost on the Security section of the forum. Although you get the sound, its not a "sound" problem.

Its some type of system problem or could still be some type of malware.
