Is there a way to mute speakers with a console app?  For example, I want to put the program in "Start Up", so each time there is a login, it mutes the speakers and then disappears.  Thanks!

Regards,
Tony

Just use

#include <windows.h>
#include <mmsystem.h>

int main () {

    waveOutSetVolume ( 0, 0);

}

and link with winmm.lib
