I had some help and it was suggested to make a new post. 
 
ok so current problem is random noises coming from laptop
 
I dont think it's motherboard as it has passed many tests all good.
I keep battery fully charged most time. high performance.
 
sometimes the sound sounds like a camera shutter noise or screenshot capture noise
but it varies.
sometimes its like a beep about 3 variable kinds of sounds but all single short beeps alone.
i noticed it did not happen on Sunday hmmm
 
it happens on desktop even if i am not running anything and no browsers open.
also i use headphones for music alot and it seems to make the noise from my laptop speakers not in the headphones.
i believe it has only happened when i am online...
 
feels creepy like somebody is watching or surveilance me espec. when reading news, i am somewhat political.
hard to ignore it.  beeps when i read/ write
 
occasionally i still find the teredo tunneling device (old problem) appear but i disable it when i catch it.
 
2 suspects - hidden-
Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Network 
Microsoft Wifi Direct Virtual Adapter
(I constantly have to disable these as they reenable themselves somehow!)
 
 
these are links to previous threads if that may help
 
in order of most recent
 
 
 
 
 
 
Another question I have is why do bleeping computer instructors ask people to uninstall the tools when complete ? just for space or? 
 
thanks and appreciation for all help.

Have you run any antimalware scans?  (And, no, I haven't read all the prior threads).

 

If not, I'd get Malwarebytes and/or others and do a complete system scan rather than just a quick scan to see if it finds anything.

yes many different ones alot ! :)

 

I find Malwarebytes overrated imho - many other softwares have caught things it missed.

 

I've checked every sound file I can find on my laptop and these sounds are different than any of the sounds found....

If malware scanners are finding nothing, and antivirus/security suites are finding nothing, then I'd recommend doing a Windows 10 Reset if you're on Windows 10 or back up your user data and reinstall the OS you're using.

 

As to your opinion on Malwarebytes, what you've said applies to virtually any product.  Each of them may, at one time or another, find something another does not due to the vagaries of what has been reported to them and/or whether your definitions have been updated.  That's why I always suggest that people have more than one arrow in their proverbial quivers.

Clicking may just be the HDD head moving or a fan spinning.
