    Default Windows XP 'Tune' Disabling

    Hi. Have a problem with kids who I can't train to mute or lower the volume of the machine to 'nil' when they shutdown the desktop. So when One of us older types comes to power up (perhaps) in the middle of the night, we're (and the rest of the house) are blasted with that confounded Log On Tune. Is there a way to mute it automatically, before it is 'run', on startup, no matter what volume it was at on shutdown? Cheers.

    You can disable it via Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Sounds. Find the entry called Windows Logon and change it to 'none' via the drop box.

    Or, you could just remove the xp startup sound

    Control Panel>Sound and Audio Devices>Sounds tab>Then select Windows Startup/Logon sound, and select "none" for the sound.

    Thanks Stormdragon and blam6. I tried your (literal) solution. It worked, and I also changed the shutdown sound to 'none'. Thanks, again.
