    Windows 7 RC
    How do I shut off this annoyance? Whenever I go to a new webpage I get a "system sound". I dont see or hear the sound noted in the "Change system sounds" area on the Control Panel.

    Thanks

    Jim

    Need more info m8. What browser are you using. Try going to control panel > sound and choosing No sounds in the drop down.

    I am using IE 8. I will try your suggestion. Would that shut off all sounds though? I am just looking to stop the tone that plays when I the page changes.
    Any help is appreciated

    Option 1

    Go into "Control Panel", "Sound", "Sounds" tab, find "Start Navigation" and turn it off.

    Option 2

    Test each sound in "Sounds" until you find the offending one(s), then turn it (them) off.
