Windows 7: System Sounds Have All Changed

System Sounds Have All Changed

My new email sound, USB connection and disconnection sound, and even the sound when clicking through folders have all changed. Was this because of a Windows Update? I'd like the old sounds back, if possible.

Hi,

Take a look at your system sounds and see if it is set to Windows Default.

Click Start >> Search for Sound >> Select Change system sounds from the search menu

All system sounds are the same
No matter what sound scheme I choose all system sounds are a low frequency click. If I open a wav file and select play from the context menu I hear what I would expect, but when I apply that wav file (e.g. a chiming bell) to say System beep - all I hear is the click! Other programs - like...
