Windows XP Start.wav / Start Navigation sound isn't working

    Hello, and thank you for reading my post.

    For some time now, I noticed that my PC's "click sound", which normally
    appears while surfing in IE 6, wasn't working. I'd learned that I'd need to
    visit the Start Navigation sound in Control Panel-->Sounds and Audio Devices,
    and select Windows XP Start.wav...which I'd do, but it wouldn't stay in place
    as soon as I clicked on "Apply".

    Because of this issue, and others, too, I reinstalled a "clean" version of
    Windows XP SP2, and then upgraded it (&, by extension, IE 6) to SP3, over the
    past weekend, but, while that sound DOES now play, it still doesn't stay
    permanently associated with the event as I'd need to re-associate it
    sometimes (it seems) once or twice per session.

    Why could this be happening, and what can I please do about it so that the
    association stays in place?

    I hope you'll please reply soon, and thank you very much again.
