Start-Up Jingle (Kill it please, Kill it now)

No Sounds is your sound scheme Right, but Win 7 thinks you don't really mean it and Still taunts you with the pre-schooler's Start-Up jingle.

**** Un-Check "Play Windows Startup Sound" near the bottom of the Sound Scheme selection window.

I missed it.
Sanity suffered. I'm better now though, thanks.

Making my own Japanese Theme

I am using a iconset from iconarchive called yoritsuki icons by hybridworks (35 Icons) I really love the japanese wallpapers that came with it. All I needed to do to fix to wallpaper problem was make a folder for both wallpapers in 1 folder and then open the folder in the theme section. Kind of a simple fix.

The hard part was understanding that I could make a separate folder for the actual sounds. I did not want to change the actual windows sounds I wanted to make a secondary folder for the new theme not have to delete or change the original sounds in case I wanted to convert back sometime.

So this post really helped me out. Thanks for writing it. By the way I plced a link to the actual icon set I used so others can find them as well. They are free and I get nothing out of just dropping a link.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Great tutorial, thank you. As I scan through the events that one may assign a sound to, I notice that 'delete' is missing. There may be others. How do I add this event (and others) to the list in order to assign a sound?

Hey Marc,

I don't see a "Delete" event there by default.

I'm not sure that you can add anything other than restore any missing default events from the registry.
