Hello. I hope someone here can help me.

I'm having a problem getting user account sound event settings to work
correctly. If a change is made for one user, it seems to change for the
other user accounts. However, there is a twist ....... for instance, User 1
has a sound selected for windows logon and User 2 has a different sound
selected for that same event. When using fast user switching, User 2 logs
off/switches to User 1, User 1 hears the sound he has selected for logon, as
well as User 2's selected sound for that event. In other words, when User 1
logs on, he hears 2 sounds. This problem only effects Limited User
accounts and has no effect on the Administrator account.

We are running WinXP Home w/ SP2. Any light you can shed on this problem
would be greatly appreciated.

That is caused by each User not setting their own Sound Scheme. Go to:
Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio>Sounds tab
Under Sound Scheme, each User has to set their sound to their own
preferences and give the Sound Scheme a name and click Apply and OK
This will save their sounds for when they log on and also switches when
changed to another User. Each User has to set their own sounds and save
the settings to take effect. You can also set each User to have their own
Wallpaper (background).

Thanks for the reply, Byte, but that doesn't seem to solve the problem. I
tried saving each of the individual user's settings as a sound scheme, but
the problem still persists. It only seems to be effecting the Windows Logon
sound. The New Mail Notification sounds, etc. remain as selected for each
user. Any other ideas?

Also, upon further investigation, it effects all of the accounts, including
the administartor account.
