It's back. The beeping. The highlighted icon on the desktop. And will not sleep.
I don't know what is happening.
I see a lot of reads and yet no responses.
Somebody must have a clue.
I went to system preferences, keyboard and hit RESTORE DEFAULTS.
All works fine now except for the brightness keys doing the same sound thing.
If anyone knows what that is about I would appreciate it.
Early 2009 iMac OSX 10.11.6 El Capitan
Weird happenings in last 2 days:
One of 5 Desktop icon is highlighted in blue and will not go away.
Clicking on the others does not open them, only if I right click and choose OPEN.
If I attempt to drag one of them, the only one that moves is the icon highlighted in blue.
If I click on any of the other icons, the highlighted icon flashes too, and they will not open.
If I click on a dock icon the highlighted blue becomes white.
The blue bar, when I put the mouse on it to select something, flickers.
When I put the cursor on anything it disappears.
It also makes a kind of beeping sound.
I ran Malwarebytes ( there were 3 malwares and I removed them and restarted ) and Onyx and nothing came up there.
PS After I just logged out, I hit the yellow button on top left to put the screen on the dock and it started that beeping sound and
then it stopped when I brought it back.
Now if I close a browser, the beeping starts and stops when I open one.
Also, two brightness keys on the keyboard activate the sound, not the brightness.
The left key turns it to mute and the right key decreases it.
Also, will not stay asleep.
