Windows 7: Sound Mixer Doesn't Retain Settings After Reboot

Sound Mixer Doesn't Retain Settings After Reboot

I get all of the sound settings exactly how I want them, and invariably upon rebooting, all of the sliders go up to the maximum. This is somewhat annoying, but even more so for some apps, like my email client, which is set to play a sound when an email is received. The reason being that the client doesn't appear in the sound mixer, until it receive a message to notify you about. As luck would have it, it seems that this most often occurs after going to bed, only to be aroused by the sound of "You've got mail" blasting so loudy that I'm probably awakening my neighbors also.

Is there a way to tweak this, so that it will always speak softly?

I'll try it, but I don't think that it will work, because if it doesn't do anything, it wouldn't play the sound at all...would it?

* Enabling and disabling an option would fix some issues at times. So, its just a trial and error. Try first and second options

* Meanwhile, I will think of other solutions

You can stop thinking about it, because it seems to have worked. I thank you and my neighbors thank you.
