ISLAMIC STARTUP AND SHUTDOWN SOUNDS FOR WINDOWS

What are your computer's Start Up and Shut Down sounds ?

Start Up sound is the audio file which is played when Windows starts up whilst Shut Down sound is played when Windows shuts down. Both of these sounds are, by default, Microsoft Sounds and stored in the folder 'C:/Windows/Media';

Can the User Customise these sounds ?
