    Ghost sound in my iMac
    Every now and then what sounds like a milling machine in action comes from my iMac. I do have a CNC milling machine and have put videos of it on my iMac but I've found and deleted all of them. The strange thing is no programme aside from Finder is running but there is still a sound file playing loudly. I'm 99% certain that it is a sound file and not an interference type sound. I have yet to spot it in Activity Monitor but I'll try that next time. I've used Clean my Mac, MacKeeper and Sophos to clean up and eradicate any virus that might cause it - nothing found.

    Any one else had this/solved it?

    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    Are you sure it's not just the fans spooling up?

    Also, I would HIGHLY recommend removing MacKeeper immediately:
    Uninstalling MacKeeper

    MacKeeper is a scam. It does nothing that built-in utilities on your Mac don't already do, and in fact, there are many reports that it can damage the OS. To add insult to injury it's not even a "Mac" application - the developer repackaged a bunch of Windows code and run it under emulation.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks for that, it is now removed. I'll report back if the problem still happened. Definitely not the fans in the iMac, I don't think it has any anyway.

    It does - in fact, it probably has several. You can see their status by using something like iStat Pro (runs in the Dashboard) or iStat Menus (runs in the Menu bar).
