Recently I made some adjustments to my volume control (turned up every setting). Consequently, each time I start my computer, the lead in Windows jingle nearly blasts me out of the room. I have reduced all settings in the volume control (located in the bottom right hand corner tray) and nothing seems to change. Is there any other way of reducing the volume of the lead in jingle.
