[3]Hopefully this won't sound patronising (but it once happened to me :blush: )[/3]

[3]Are you using a PC or a laptop?[/3]

If it's a laptop you haven't inadvertently left a built-in microphone on have you? I somehow managed to do this (didn't even know the thing even had a mic!) and I was puzzled for quite some time as to what was causing the strange scraping noises every time I moved the thing! :lol: definite doh! moment when I realised what I'd done.
