How do I stop the clicking noise

Hi everyone.I recently started to hear random clicking noises but not from the hardware from the speakears.It sounds like when you open a folder or open a link in internetexplorer.I had this problem for 7 hours and still didnt stoped.I have runned one malwarebyte quick scan and several avira processes scans.And nothing i searched manualy in processes nothing seams unusal.Last night i had a windows update.And right before the clicking has started i installed poweriso as i got a new pc and wanted to have all kinds of different software on.However i deleted it like 20 minutes ago and still it makes the noises.I dont know what to do next i would turn of the noise but then it would be like hideing a a cut its there it hurts you but you no longer care or see it.Also havent restarted it yet.

Have you turned off all windows sounds ?

When exactly does it make these sounds ?

Also, run a system file check.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hello enterman,

You might see if turning off the clicking sound in all options in the tutorial below may be the issue.

Could you by chance have more than one DVD in the player at the same time.

Ok so i just opened my computer no clicks so far.I will do the file check do you need any files from it?if yes ill upluad them in my next reply.And no i dont have 2 DVDs at once i dont if you dont count the cd i created in the softwre to see if power iso works.And no i wont disable the sounds from ie until i know what is causing them.and i didnt turned of windows sounds at all and the clicks occur usualy when i am playing any game and when i am writeing apart of that they dont seem to do as much noise but in general they are beeing made randomly with or without activity on the user.
EDIT:Ok i have done the scan and it said that blah blah blah didnt find any integrity errors/problems also i havent heard the click in half a hour i think thats a sign any i still dont know why that happened wich dissapoints me If ill get threw the day without any clicks il probably mark this as solved but till then keep sending tips.
