My computer bleeps at 2-3 second intervals. I regularly use Spybot S&D, I have a hardware adsl modem/firewall/router, I have Zone Alarm Pro installed, I also use Ace Utilities and registryfix, I have used ewido security suite and The Ultimate Troubleshooter, whilst they all occasionally find nasties and for a day or two after using ewido (which found a cookie euroclick - which sounded coincidental) the bleeping stopped. It does not start bleeping immediately on startup some times it can be an hour or two sometimes a minute or two.

any ideas what can be causing it

Hello robinlord and welcome to BC.

Those beeps won't be caused by a virus or malware but rather usually come from the motherboard or other hardware indicating an overheating problem. Do you have any way to check your motherboard temperatures?

If not, try SpeedFan
