Hi i was advised by a moderator to try Tuneup Utilities 2006
So... I bought the full version and did all the scans and fixes that he suggested everything is great except all my system sounds are gone. No start up or shut down sounds. I really miss those cheerful melodies so plz help me out. :)
Thx :tazz:

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD

System File Check will show a blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes


Do you have sound if you play audio files
