Windows 7: Changing that startup sound! (simple, short question!)

Changing that startup sound! (simple, short question!)

I have the feeling this question has been made a thousand times before, so I'll make it short and simple:

Open this screenshot up: Screenshot by Lightshot

Is it safe for me to delete the original Windows Startup.wav file and then proceed to replace it with the new file I made on the desktop (with the same name)? Will it damage my computer in any way? My bets are that that's a way to change it, according to what I saw on a thread about this on another forum

So, can I do it?

Hm, it worked, but now my computer is loading the user-entrance waaay much slower. The audio file I set as Startup is probably really big, though (checked: 2,63MB), everything seems a bit slower. I think I'll either find a smaller audio file for this or just stick to the standard one. But thanks anyway!

Also, these showed up after a second restart:

I have no idea what that means.

And I have no idea what to do here.

Yeah, using a smaller (shorter playing) sound file should sort that for you.
