Silent running: Computer sounds are so '90s

Wonderful Nostalgia

I used to make my own ringtones and then lost interest.

In the decade when I was having to install windows, we did four things on NT4.0 Workstation (and later) and Win9x, above all else:

Double checked Regional Settings / Keyboard.

Disabled AutoRun in Registry.

Set Desktop to "No Sounds".

Disabled File & Printer sharing.


We made sure new accounts had these settings and only the designated Admin had an Admin account on NT.
