    I want to change the opening music when I turn on the computer. I have a music file that I downloaded from I tunes that I want to substitute for opening music that I presently use. Thank You. I have a new e-mail address. It is [email protected].

    Not smart to post your email addy in a public forum. The SPAM bots love to harvest addresses from posts. If you absolutely need to post it remove the @ symbol and type the word "at" instead.

    As for your initial question, you can manage your sounds from the Control Panel under the category "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under "Sounds", Look for the program event you want to change such as "Start Windows" and use the browse button to point to the .WAV file you would like to use instead.

    Don't do that.
    What version of Windows are you using?
    If you're on XP, go to Control Panel [the "advanced" one with all the options] and open Sounds and Audio Devices. Click the Sounds tab, and in the box labeled Program Events, find the one you want, in your case, probably either "Windows Logon" or "Start Windows," click browse, and find your audio file of choice.

    Could be same with ME/2K/9X. I can't remember for the life of me.

    Certainly not wanting to "Pile on"-- but, just to clarify-- The point of a forum is to ask questions and give people an opportunity to respond in a safe environment (that's why we all use screen names-- for greater safety).

    There are also PMs (personal messages that are not viewed openly to the forum- but just to the individual recipient-- but also within the safety of the forum environment).

    Good question-
