    I've done all the online research on changing sound /task associations and
    it seems that Windows 7 defaults to the default Windows start-up theme every
    time. You can change the association, but as soon as you reboot, it goes
    back to the default .wav. Has anyone found a way around that?

    The Windows start-up sound file is embedded into a system dll.
    To change the sound you would have to edit the system file with a resource editor and
    replace the wav file.
