Subject: RE: Tech: how to turn off an 'automatic' tune
Changing browsers just to silence a background tune would be like getting out the ax. So I guess I'll just live with it.

Personally I'm not actually suggesting you change your default browser away from IE: just that you have either FF or Chrome available for those sites you want to return to even though they've got The Curse Of The Bgsound on them.

What do you lose other than a few Mb of disk space and an extra icon or two on your desktop / start menu? To my mind that's more like having more than one tool in the toolbox, rather than reaching for an axe.
