Windows 7: I installed WIN7 but with sounds of XP?

I installed WIN7 but with sounds of XP?

Hi guys,

I've installed WIN7 again after having some problems and it all works fine again but the thing I want to know is this: Normally when I open a map or go back to another webpage, I hear the sounds of WIN7 but now it's just like XP.

I have to notice/say that my Windows 7 is a downloaded version and the same one I've installed before. Before the new WIN7 installation it all worked fine, and I had the sounds, just the simple sounds of Windows 7.

How can I fix this? Is it even possible to fix without having a new installation again?

Okay, but which sounds must I choose to get the thing with the webpage back/forward right? Which one is that in the windows-thingy above the place where I can pick and test sounds?

I don't understand what the first part of your question is, if you click on the highlighted section it will let you select a sound then you can test before you apply.

First of all I don't understand why my Windows 7 is using XP sounds... It's the same Windows 7 I've had before without any problems... :O And I'll try to fix it with the tips you've given me.

I use the standard Windows 7 schedule and when I'm testing sounds it's the Windows 7 sounds but when I click back to another webpage using these buttons *images are attached*, it sounds like Windows XP? Everything else is, as far as I know OK, sounding like WIN7.

And I can't remember if it's normal or not. As far as I know all the sounds are different... Or am I going crazy? :P I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to my computer, ghehe! Everything has to go my way... :$
