My computer today started making a clicking noise. It'll go on for a few minutes at a time, during which time any program I have open tends to freeze up, then it'll stop and my computer is fine again. Some looking on google would indicate that this is probably my hard drive trying to fail on me, but I wanting to see what you guys thought.

I would say it's the hard drive. Try to avoid using it until you can get a backup.

Definitely sounds like a hard drive going bad (I've heard it a couple of times . . . tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick). Don't use it until you get a replacement, then move your OS, et al.
