Windows sounds won't turn off?

Hey mate,

Try a couple tuts:

Clicking Sound while Browsing Internet and Windows Explorer - Turn Off

Just select no sounds, along with no startup sound: Sounds - Change

Are you sure it is windows sounds, or a program on your computer?

How to turn off sounds?
I just installed Windows 7 and I really like it, but that "bonk" sound it makes seemingly every time you do anything, such as clicking a link on a web page is driving me crazy? Can someone tell me how to turn this off? Thanks in advance, Kevin
