Evidence:

Spoiler

 

Oh and hello, I am new to this forum.

 

 

Here is my issue:

 

There is this strange sound playing randomly. I have no idea what it is and I have done everything to try to get rid of it.

 

I tried:

*Checking system sounds

*Malware bytes

*TDSSKiller (to be sure it's not a rootkit)

*A bunch of different varieties.

 

 

Can someone tell me what this sound is and if possible, tell me how to fix it or what it is coming from?

ESET log will come in another post after it is finished.

The TDSSKiller Log after restart is "Too large", so it will be included in another post.

EDIT: The post-restart TDSSKiller log is too large to be posted. Is it possible for me to give you a pastebin copy of it?

My current issues is the same as any.

 

My computer WAS sluggishly slow, I'm not sure right now, I cannot tell the difference.

 

I will report to you if it is still making that strange noise.

This is not malware.

 

Try a clean boot

Restart the PC

 

Do you still hear the sound?
