Windows 7: System Event - Changing sound makes a sound, how to mute it?

System Event - Changing sound makes a sound, how to mute it?

Did my searching and couldn't find this one...

When I modify the speaker volume using the "Volume Mixer" icon, it generates a sound. When I adjust using the "Speakers/Headphones" icon, it does not make a sound.
I would like to mute the Windows 7 sound that happens when I adjust the sound, preferably without effecting the other system sounds? I can't find out which system 'event' it is that causes a sound to be generated when I modify the speaker volume. I'd like to mute it, i.e. no sound when I change the volume.

Using the "Sound" control panel, in the list of "Program Events" that you can assign a sound to, there is no entry for "Change Volume" which is what I would like to see...
