    dont know whether this will work but your welcome to try.

    internet explorer
    tools
    internet options
    advanced
    multimedia
    then untick play sounds and videos

    i think that is only with the web pages with sound enabled and video files ..
    basically any modification in the internet options only take effects in the IE ..
    not connected with windows explorer

    well .. it's not matter of one or 2 video and audio files ,, it 's system global feature ..

    i'm just hoping that i can turn it OFF
