Windows 7: Sound Scheme changes not remembered

Sound Scheme changes not remembered

I've unticked the 'Play Windows Startup Sound' and selected the 'no sounds'
from the drop down box, but these are not remembered on next boot up.

I also tried deleting all of the files in Windows Media folder, but the sound still sounds on boot up.

This has been the same on 2 clean installations of x64 beta 7000.
Any information on how to correct this please ?

David.

Have you tried saving your theme after disabling sounds?

Tried that thanks, but the boot up sound is still there.
Can you tell me where that sound file is located as I've deleted all of the files in the media folder.

Have you any further thoughts Mr Grim please.

I've tried every combination of settings to disable windows sounds.
Deleting all of the files from the media folder has killed all but the Windows Start up default sound, which is what I'm desperate to get rid of.
I always stop the windows sounds on every new installation, one of the first tweaks I make on a new installation.

Should maybe add that the x64 beta 7000 is from a direct download from MS and I've done a couple of clean installations with the same result.

Activated win 7 with the key given by Microsoft for beta downloads.
Keys for the x64 and the x86 versions, but I've not tried the x86 version yet.

I've done exactly the same as in vista adjustments, to stop default window sounds, but can't stop the start up sound from win 7.

Does anyone know were that particular file is within window system folder please.

I had a look and I think it's the one in the windows\media directory

That's the strange thing, I've deleted all of the files in the media folder, after altering folder options to show hidden files and system files.
Still the windows default sound is there on each boot up.

Found it.
All of the window sounds are in Documents, Win Sounds.

I'll report back after deleting from here.

I crowed too soon.
Deleted all of the files in the documents, win sounds folder, but the start up sound is still there. So there are now NO sound files in Windows Media and Documents Win Sounds.
