Windows 7: Disabling the "Start Navigation" sound?

Disabling the "Start Navigation" sound?

Hey guys,

I know how to disable the "Start Navigation" sound that produces the annoying click noise any time a link is clicked, but any time I change my theme the sound is back to whatever that theme turns it into.

Since I can already hear my mouse button click, I don't need this and quite frankly it is a very irritating sound when playing music, etc...

Is there any way to disable this sound permanently across all themes so I don't have to set it to "None" each time I change themes?

Thanks!

You have to set it and then save each theme without it to keep it from coming back.

They're really not making it easy for me to resist tossing my Vista-loaded hard drive back in...

You only have to do it once, then it's done.

You're welcome
