Since clicking on a site that had a nasty pop-up, I have been getting repeated sounds of the USB port being plugged in and out. The only way to stop the noise is to disable Windows Sounds. After a few days, the activity of this malware becomes constant and it affects my ability to type words. (I'm guessing that it's a keylogger). Yesterday, my mouse froze and I was forced to reinstall Windows.
I have reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows several times.
This seems to reduce the frequency of the sounds, but they start increasing again whenever I use websites that require adobe flash player (amongst other things).

I have run Malwarebytes, Kaspesky, Eset, Spybot, but they can find nothing.

I have no USB drives plugged in my USB ports.

I am running windows 8.1.

Usually reinstalling Windows cleans up everything but this nasty infection must be hiding somewhere else? Could it be in the BIOS?

Do any experts out there have any ideas of how I can get rid of this?

I tried running DDS.com but it seems to be incompatible with Windows 8.1
