Whenever you navigate into a folder or click back or forward buttons in Windows Explorer, it plays short "click" sound. I imagine there's a way to turn that off, but haven't been able to find it.

"It's like a clickin' noise!"

You can disable all Windows sounds by going to Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds and using the drop-down, choose No Sounds. For just Explorer based programs, scroll down to Windows Explorer and find Start Navigation and click that. Then choose (none).

Thanks for the pointer! On Windows 7, this option in Control Panel is just called "Sounds", or you can type in "change system sounds" in the Start - Run. – Alex Beynenson Aug 27 '10 at 17:12
Good to know. I'm still hanging strong and fully committed to XP 64-bit! – nicorellius Aug 27 '10 at 17:15
