Static every 30-40 seconds???

I have never had problems with ableton before today, and today its making a static sound every 30-40 seconds that last for about 8 seconds.  It started when I loaded a project and continued as long as the program (ableton) was open.  I tried opening and closing the program.  tried restarting my pc.  I tried exporting the song i was working on as a backing track to get working on a solo competition but the static recorded in the track as well...  totally infuriating.  I have 2 days to enter my project.  please let me know of a fix asap.

    Are you using any third party VSTi/s - sounds like something is running in demo mode and is outputting that noise as part of the demo restriction (I had a tape emulator VST that did exactly that effect - noise every 5 secs or so)
