I have a really dumb question. :tazz:
I am getting a weird noise on my pc about every 3-5 minutes. It sounds like a camera whirring and then a "click" like someone or something took a picture of my pc. I have tried and tried to find out what this could be to no avail!! It is driving me crazy because it's making it hard to even listen to music. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?? I'm not really good at messing with my pc so I have no idea what to do ;) I am running Windows XP Pro. Have AVG antivirus,Adaware SE, Spybot and Zone Alarm
Thanks so much ;)

Nope, no webcam. Haven't had one on here in a looong time. My old one isn't XP compatible.

Mabye (if you have one) it's just your pc system speaker making the weird noises. Open up your comp box and unplug the system speaker from the motherboard.

Hope that works.

;) oh jeez... I feel soo stupid!! I found out what was making the whir click noise by the simple deduction of turning programs off and on. I had Weather Pulse installed on my computer and that was what was making the noise. Don't know why though. It may have had spyware in it...not sure. But I do thank the people who made suggestions for my problem. This is a great forum. :tazz: Have a great day everyone!! ;)
