Locking or resetting volume button on start-up

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Problem starts with son.... uses windows media to listen to "his" music with
headphones.. cranks the volume slider to highest setting.

Along come other users... volume cranked!!!

Asking for volume to be reset basck manually by the offender didn't work..
even threatened cmos password lockout :-/.

Would be nice to reset the volume on startup to an acceptable level for most
uses.

Is there anyway to do this within windows itself?

    Use the cmos password lockout.

    Ok, seriously now, there is no easy way out of this other than the (ab)user
    changing his habits.
