I've been searching high and low for this as I want to add it to my cell phone sounds..yes I know, Mr Gates wouldn't like that. It isn't in the Sounds folder.
The sound I'm referring to is the one that you hear as the Vista logo appears on your screen, prior to the Users' Logon page appearing.
Any clues anyone?

LOl...now you tell me it was there all the time. I did some research and went to all the trouble of extracting it from \System32\imageres.dll using Resource Hacker 3.4.0.
Then I used Nero to convert .wav to .mp3.
Ah well, now I know that gallery is there......!! :openmouth:

Thanks!

I thought everyone knew about it... I guess I should put big links here on the forums to the blog, wiki, and gallery or something. :scared:
