Windows 7: How do I stop that annoying sound when Windows & starts up.

How do I stop that annoying sound when Windows & starts up.

This is what I have tried...

1. Control Panel> Hardware and Sound>Sound>Adjust system volume -I then click the mute icon to mute "System Sounds".

2. Control Panel> Hardware and Sound>Sound>Change System Sounds - I then select "No Sounds".

When the system starts up, just when the log-in window appears, I get this annoying chime sound. I would really like to get rid of this sound, when Windows 7 starts up.

Thank you
James

Never mind, I found the answer...

Hello James,

You should be able to turn off the Windows startup sound, and set the Windows Log on sound to (None).

Startup Sound - Enable or Disable

Sounds - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I do appreciate your reply, thank you.
Actually I found the answer by, (and I blush when I say this), by opening my eyes. There is a simple little check mark on the "Sounds" tab, which is labeled in plain English for all to see,"Play Windows Startup sound".
Removing this little check mark solved my problem.
