it might be helpful to know your windows version and whether you are on dial up or Broadband; and for how long this has been happening; and how old (or new) is the machine you are using?

I wonder if it is the sound of pop ups being blocked?

They are trying to open and are being stopped by your pop up blocker.

Run the usual, Ad-aware etc..

which is a point; what protection programs do you have on there, or a firewall ; and do you have the google toolbar?

more basic info and feedback would be useful please:)

also,pages that refresh themselves will click.the delay when you click on I.E could be your AV or anti spyware working in real time

so; did this clicking only start after you began using spygate?

when i start up my firewall Sygate it goes in the systry now when i got too ctrl/alt/delt it says Smc not responding,so i close that down, then when i point me mouse at Sygate in the tray it Dissapears.
Does this mean my firewall isnt running/. plus all the time when ive opened a window it seems too be busy all the time .click click click . :O(
Really annoying now as its so slow ,took me 20 mins write this as me window keeps freezing for a while b4 i can carry on .
ty all .
