Just wondering if there is a way to change the music a Windows PC plays on startup from the Winblows trumpeter to something like the theme from "Close encounters of the third kind", "Bridge over the River Kwai", "Indiana Jones", etc.

Please post even if you only know how to do this for versions of Windows other than XP

Goto Control Panel / Sounds & Audio Devices / Sounds and scroll down until you find the entry for 'Start Windows' highlight it and browse for another sound from your library.

I may be wrong on this, but I think you can only use *.wav type files.

That looks right - even for Win2k.

I guess I'll have to search for wav formatted files of Close Encounters

You can also use a program like Audacity to convert sound files to .wav
