Xp Critical Stop wav noise on startup

  zemdarin 14:02 04 Aug 2004

Recently I had to turn my computer off at the main as it froze and I couldn't access Task Manager, since then when I boot up, right at the last moment I get the Windows XP Critical Stop wav sound play. Is there a reason and can I stop this from Happening please?

go into control panel, click on sounds and scoll don until u see the one thats says 'windows startup' or maybe even just 'startup'. then chnage it to whatever you want by clicking on browse

Thanks Inneedofhelp, it wasn't so much as the Critical Stop Playing, as to why it was playing. The windows XP log-on tune played, then after all the icons had entered the Taskbar, the Critical Stop played as well. After your advice I found "Sounds and Audio" in my Control Panel opened it then Sound, found Critical Stop and changed it to none, at least it has stopped playing when I log on now Thanks.
