How to control sound in Internet Explorer ?

Im listening music with Winamp and at same time browse on internet. I don't like Internet Explorer sound interfearing on various pages(especialy flash sites) with my music on Winamp. How do i turn down sound in Internet Explorer without shutting down all the sound on pc ?

Re: How to control sound in Internet Explorer ?

Go to IE options and uncheck the option "Play Sounds in webpages"

This should work

Try this one.

Go to menu Tool --> Manage Addons

Search for the flash player and disable it. This should work, but you will be not able anymore to see any flash object

If i disable flash objects i can't open flash based sites with or without music.
I just wanted to mute IE while i listen music but i guess those geniuses at microsoft didn't think about this.

Re: How to control sound in Internet Explorer ?

Try this other method. Right click on a flash object and see if it is opened a menu (some flash object disable this option ). Search for "properties" or "options". If I'm not wrong there should be also an option to set volume

Re: How to control sound in Internet Explorer ?

I pondered about this last year myself.
Sorry to "bump", but some may google "How to mute IE" hehe.
Well, I do have half an answer.
Vista only. (or read below)"volume mixer" lets you global mute any running program.

As -DarkFoX- says, IndieVolume works perfect so far(XP). I'm doing the 30 day trial, and everything seems perfect. No more flash-ads blasting me off my chair! www.indievolume.com
