Internet Explorer 7: Beta 2 Preview - released on March 20th

First the good news:
Ok, so the new refreshed beta 2 of Internet Explorer 7 has been released today.

Next, the annoyances:
Why is it that Microsoft has the right, or they think so, upon installing this new beta version, to change your sound scheme definition? Every time they add this really annoying sound to the "Start Navigation" event. If you are a web developer, you are probably "starting navigation" a gazillion times a day, so this stupid little sound slows down the navigation and gets on your nerves as well. The biggest annoyance is not that sound per se, it is the fact that they change the sound scheme without renaming it.
You can't just (re)select your own scheme, because it now contains this stupid sample, and you have to manually set it to "(none)" after scrolling the ever growing list of sound events.
Actually, the same thing happens when you choose a different display theme as well. Some idiot at Microsoft decided to add that sound to every new theme you select, uxtheme hack or not.
