Windows 7: Sound Off, not really............ :-(

Sound Off, not really............ :-(

When I go to Windows 7 Control Panel, Sounds, and choose No Sounds, then click Apply, OK, and exit all looks ok. For some brief period of time (not known) it's mute, but without me installing, restoring, or doing anything with those sound settings the Default Sounds come back into effect and start playing again.

Background: I do some live recording off a "What I Hear" driver "Creative (R)" and try to multi-task only to hear the sounds of my activities cut/paste Windows shrink/maximize, etc., and obviously going into my recording as well.

The Windows 7 setting to No Sound doesn't seem to be a durable setting? Suggestions? Thanks

It looks like, to me, that enabling the sounds of your activites is reactivating the system sounds.

I have my system sounds set to "no sounds" as I use my PC for my home recording studio. I don't enable any other program's sounds and the system sounds stay muted. I've done this on the computer I have now and my previous PC. Never had a problem.

I'm not sure what I'm doing to enable. I go to the Control Panel, sounds, and on the sounds by event/application/action tab I select no sounds. When I scroll down in that window no action has an associated sound file. Then, for instance I play an audio stream from the internet and try to record it with Audavcity or Goldwave and all the action sounds (i.e. cut, paste, maximize, minimize still occur.

When I return to the Control Panel my "No sounds" setting is still my choice.

Setting system sounds to "No Sound" simply doesn't work.

I don't use Audacity but I do have a full registered version of Goldwave. I've recorded with Goldwave from the internet and the sounds did not enable.

I'm not sure what to suggest next.
