Repost: Can't stop XP sounds

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by The Stone Crusher, May 13, 2009.

  1. OK, OK! I went to the control panel selected Sounds, etc., and selected "No
    Sounds". Everytime a 'pop-up appears, so does the sound. OK, OK! Then I
    went to C:\Windows\Media & changed the names of a bunch of wav files.
    Everytime a 'pop-up appears, so does the sound. OK,OK! I renamed the Media
    folder. Everytime a 'pop-up appears, so does the sound.

    Could the sounds be coming from my anti-virus program? I am using PC Shield
    2008. It seems the sound I used to get when I tried to adjust the volume by
    means of the 'task bar' icon is gone.

    Goodwill,
    Luke
