Windows 7: UAC popup sound

UAC popup sound

I muted system sounds in the volume bar. But the UAC popup still makes a sound. I'm running a regular account, the UAC popup asks for the password

Hello Isura,

Strange that you will still have sound if you muted it from the Volume icon.

As a workaround, see if you can set the Windows User Account Control sound to none in the Sound settings and click OK. This way there will ne no sound assigned to UAC to play.

You're welcome Isura.

When you muted the volume icon on the taskbar, was it the speaker icon like below that you muted? Perhaps you may have muted a different one??

I muted Mixer->System sounds. I want volume for other apps.

Strange, that should have muted UAC as well. It does for me.
