Windows 7: windows XP sounds in windows 7

windows XP sounds in windows 7

Is there a place I can get the windows XP sounds to download and import to my windows 7 theme, there is various sounds from XP which I felt were more suited for productivity reasons. The windows 7 sounds are more calmer and quieter but as a result they dont draw my attention enough and they sound too similiar to each other so I hear a sound and wonder what it is for.

If you have access to a XP computer you could just copy them from the C:\Windows\Media folder. If you don't have access here is all of them from one of my computers still running XP,
