Computer makes clicking noise when it starts up

Question

For awhile now my computer makes a clicking noise when it starts up but I can make it stop by pressing any key on the keyboard. Also another thing that has been occuring is that sometimes the first time I open any program after starting the computer, it will open multiple times once the program opened more than 20x until all ram memory was used up. or when I open the web browser it will stick til I hit ctr & alt. I would think a virus would be doing the multiple opening of programs but I can not locate one on my computer during that time. My computer does keep getting infected with different viruses. I manage to get them atleast once a week if not more often. I have 2 different firewalls installed and 2 antivirus programs one antivirus program is AVG that I downloaded for free of the internet. The other program is vcom systemsuite 5. Plus I have also ran multiple other antivirus programs from the internet and none have pick up on any other virus. Sorry this was long but this problem has really been bugging me. thanks for any help you can give me. Heather

It seems that you dont have a virus since you are saying you scanned for viruses and nothing came up It might be that your keyboard has some stuck keys I would suggest you try out a new keyboard and see if this problem persists.
