Hi, I've been hearing this clock clicking sound on my laptop specially in the mornings, I've tried ccleaner, hitman pro, adw cleaner, rogue killer, malware bytes and mbar, after running them I've restarted my laptop and still the same thing, now that I'm posting this ad it seems the virus is mocking me I can hear it more frequently on this precise moment haha

I have to say that in the past an ex girlfriend put a keylogger in my laptop but was able to get rid of it using the above tools.

Thanks for your help

Nothing suspicious was found on your logs.

My search for Clciking sound at startup lead me to believe that you hard disk may be going bad.

Use Google and paste the following search.
