This is not Linux forums. Win7 doesn't even like Linux much. Sorry.

What really annoys me is the system sounds in Windows. Every time you click on something, it beeps at you. I did finally find a way to turn off all system sounds. But it seems to me that the default would be no system sounds then if you like the beeping, you can turn it on. But MS has the sounds on as the default. I can not understand why anyone wants to hear a beep whenever they do something. Do the sounds annoy anyone else?

There is one Linux Forum I go to now and then and they are not very nice sometimes and if you go there and try to ask a Windows 7 question they're either going to bash you or ignore you.

Yes.

I have used Audigy, a free audio editor, to make my own wav files for a few Windows sounds. Such as start up, The Addams Family theme and reboot, Ghost Busters theme.

I did that years ago on the ancient Win 95 computer....almost everything was Beavis and Butt-head quotes

You can also try another Sounds theme at rightclick>Desktop>Personalize.

I like the Delta one which comes with the US Aero theme.

You may want to reset your desktop slideshow from the theme's limited selection.

That's one bad Apple - it's all gone pear-shaped now Steve Jobs is no longer around to take care of business.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
