IE 6 & 7 sound problems

by sailingtheoceans / November 19, 2006 3:46 AM PST

I am hoping someone can solve this problem of mine. Internet explorer plays a sound every time you click on a button or refresh a page. I like to listen to Yahoo Launchcast, but between every song it refreshes. So I hear a few clicks between songs. Launchcast can only be used in IE, no other browser. IE 6 and IE 7 both have this audio. Anyone know how to remove the audio from IE so that it doesn't make this audible click? Any help or options would be appreciated. Thanks.

Scroll down to Windows Explorer, and make sure that in Complete Navigation and Start Navigation there is no sound.

Sorted! (I hope)
