Hello Experts,

I really didn't know how the title this request.

Anyway, the problem is every click of the mice generates a sound.

Can someone show me how to stop the sounds from every mouse click.

Also, is it possible to determine what is making sounds that I keep on hearing every now-and-then for no reason that I can visually see?

Cheers

Carlton

disable all programs at startup :
in the run box, type msconfig
in the startup tab, click disable all
reboot and test
if OK now, it was one of the disabled programs - you can enable them back 1by 1 or in groups to see which one!

What noises are you getting "every now and then?" Can you be more specific?

Hi Carlton - we need to flesh out the facts.

1) is the sound a beep or a sound effect
2) define "every now and then" (as snibborg asks)

thanks

Is the mouse USB? And if so, is the mouse securely inserted into the USB port? If you have another mouse you could borrow try that and/or try plugging the mouse into a different port.

If you're getting the "USB device inserted" sound then Windows thinks you have done just that - which points to a dodgy mouse cable or dodgy port and explains why it's only "now and then"; it's when the cable is just at "that angle" to disconnect for a moment...

That is a total guess, and you don't mention the mouse stops working but if it happens quickly you get the sound without the mouse going offline.

drmiket,

I'm getting a sound for everything. I will get a sound if I click or do anything, and I would very much like some help in stopping it.

I just used the USB sound as an example of sounds that are happening in the background without me doing anything.

You're help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Carlton

Hi Carlton,

Please confirm the behaviour with a yes or no

Sound occurs when you click left mouse button?

Sound occurs when you click right mouse button?

Sound occurs when you move mouse?

Sound occurs when you don't touch the mouse at all?

Is it the same sound every time?


Please help us by avoiding the words: sometimes, now and then, everything, nothing. I'm not a doctor (ahem) but you need to tell us exactly what the symptoms are otherwise we can't help.

thanks :).

Hi nobus,

I mean, the malware didn't resolve the problem I'm having with the continous sounds whenever I click the mouse.

I have just completed a AV scan after updating McAfee.

Is this problem often caused by a virus?

drmiket thanks for responing.

I found out what the problem was. It was the same sound for every click, so I checked the sounds and I noticed that the sound 'Windows Notify' was assigned to every mouse click e.g. restore, maximise, close program, open program, everything.

So I selected 'None' for all of them and job done.

Just wanna say a thousand apologies for the confusing statements I made.

Cheers
