    I have system sounds switched to "No Sounds" in control panel but I'm still getting the little clicky sound when opening folders. Any help?

    Customise the sound options - scroll way down to explorer and make sure there are no sounds for navigation or command I believe.

    Yeah, there's no sounds for anything.

    Okay, update. Apparently even if I save a No Sounds scheme or then go back and remove each sound individually, certain sounds (including "start navigation") come back. Very annoying.

    yeah, but I've been using the same theme since I rebuilt this machine (reinstall) in April 2010 and I had also used it for at least a year on the previous install.
