I have windows Vista Home Premium with a 32-bit operating system and an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU.

I often get random mouse click noises (but it doesn't actually select anything and the taskbar pops up at the same time. I have scanned my computer with McAfee Anti-virus plus, as well as Malwarebytes' anti-malware with no results of a virus of any sort. I also use Sandboxie basically all the time.

I also use a USB mouse.

If someone could give me some help or describe what's happening i'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

While I'm not suggesting malware is at fault, I can tell you that McAfee is widely acknowledged as next to worthless. I'd suggest replacing it with ANY other anti virus utility.

As for the clicking, please boot to safe mode and see if the same problem occurs there. Let us know.
