Someone tell me how to turn off these HORRIFIC startup and shutdown sounds. They are bugging the CRAP out of me. I've tried Control Panel -> Sounds, but I set it to no sounds, and now it just doesn't play log on/log off sounds. Thats a start.
I already disabled the Welcome Screen, it still makes the sounds.
Oh, and how do I totally get rid of these nasty XP themes? I want to uninstall them so they don't show on the login window.
Windows noob. These are probably dumb questions.
