When I am on mIRC I am chilling, then all of a sudden I hear these 'clicks' like when you click on something and you hear that clicking noise. Vague enough?

Okay, what happens is my window gets tabbed out, so I have to click it again. Then it happens each 3 minutes. NOTHING besides Ventrilo and my Virus Protection is running. Even with it off it still happens.

Whiel in game on Steam, 3 minutes I get tabbed out of game, and nothing pops up. If I eye my desktop long enough, a 'Internet Explorer' has encountered a problem and needs to close." but I haven't even opned it yet.

I edited my startup with my virus protection (Defender Pro) and deleted all registries that are not system related and are programs. Still happens.

I recently got attacked by viruses due to not intalling Windows Security Updates; and I fixed that problem; but I think this is a sympton of a virus or that.

try starting in safe mode with networking and see if the problem still persists in the programs that you KNOW it happens with..

also with your next post

Please go HERE and skip to step 5 (Step Five: Posting a Hijack This Log). Follow all of the steps for scanning your computer and generating a log. when the scan is complete, press the "Save log" button. A "Save Log file" dialog box will appear. Type Hijackthis.txt for the file name and make sure that "save as type" is set to "all files". Save this file to a location that you will remember (your desktop is good). Now on your next post ATTACH this newly created txt file with your next post.
DO NOT POST THE CONTENTS OF THE HIJACK THIS LOG. This will encourage others to do this as well and we do not want that.
