Sounds re-instated after IE 7 upgrade

I recently upgraded to IE 7 thanks to Windows Update. I thought everyone could benefit from something that I noticed after I started using it for a while.

The machine I upgraded was the one I use to record the Spine Radio and Podcasts on. If you noticed in the latest episode of Spine Radio that there were a couple of beeps and clicks, then you'll know what I'm about to complain about.

I had my system sounds turned off; "No Sounds" was the profile that I had chosen. After installing IE 7, it had gone ahead and added all explorer's sounds back again -- very annoying. Definitely something to be aware of if you use your PC for recording things.
