Every time I visit a new web page or go to an already open tab for the first time during a session i get this odd squiggling sound through my speakers.

I've scanned with avira in safe mode, malwarebytes, TDSSKiller, and that DDS thing and have found nothing.


Do you think this is a hardware or a software problem?

Did you run a full scan with your anti virus app?

Who instructed you to run TDSSKiller and DDS? Were they the person or persons who determined that nothing was found?

yes. that and none of the programs ever found anything. avira never found anything in either safe or fully booted mode. malwarebytes found nothing in fully booted mode.

The pop up blocker makes a sound when it blocks one because they want you to know that it's working.

You could test it by turning off your popup blocker and see if the sound stops..
