    probably spyware

    Sounds like the harddrive if it is clicking even if you are not doing anything, but is the sound coming from the speakers or the laptop itself?

    Edit:
    I wonder if your browser is just stopping popups.

    yeah run adaware, spybot and a full virus scan. google the first two and download the software and run it (update the software first)

    Go to control panel, select 'sounds and audio devices', click on the 'sounds' tab, scroll down the window until you get to 'explorer'. Click on 'complete navigation' and change the sound to 'None'

    Banned

    try copying a lot of small files to another folder. if it clicks a lot then it is your HDD

    its ok to have no sound but that still doesnt sort the problem. will have to get the oh to take a look at this later i am not well up on computers. i have a virus check and a spyware i have just updated both but the clicking continues.

    If it is not actual sound coming from speakers, then it is not software / virus / spyware related. Try what csiman suggest to see if it is the harddrive.
