is there a way to lock sound volume on a windows 7 64bit home premium?

my mom is a moron and my brothers an ass.

i am getting sick of hearing the screaming fights over my brother having the computers volume to loud

is there some way to lock the computers volume?

my brother is a computer moron, but he isnt afraid to mess with setting until he gets his way, so just going into the main sound thing for windows and lowering it isnt helping, unless there is a way to password lock it.

This is easily fixed with a cast iron frying pan. Just follow these simple steps.

1. Let brother use computer. Monitor his activity.
2. When brother opens sound settings, strike brother with pan lightly in back of head.
3. Repeat until behavior changes.

Hopefully, your brother will learn, every time he opens the sound menu, he experiences pain. Unless he likes pain, he will stop. If after a few rounds, his behavior doesn't stop, add speed to the swing of the pan prior to striking the brother.

You could always get a switch also and hide it.

Unfortunately there is no software that will limit the volume output on your sound card nor is there a setting to do so either.

You could try this:

I don't have any personal experience with it, but it sounds like it may work for you. It cost 15 bucks, but there is a 14 day trial.

I just gave this a try myself. Seems to work great. It lets you set a password to stop anyone from trying to unlock your preset volume. It not only allows you to control the master volume but also volume for the various sub-functions and the recording volume as well

Unfortunately, you can shut it down in Task Manager. If he had his own User Account you could disable Task Manager for his account in the registry if your the admin.
