How to save Vista volume mixer settings for IE7?

    Vista introduced the feature known as volume mixer where each application (in
    this case IE7) has a volume control slider bar compounded to the universal
    device volume control. By default the application volume control bar is in
    par with device control bar. Because my earphone is quite sensitive, even the
    lowest notch (1) of device volume is very loud, so I have to adjust each
    application volume to ~5% of device volume (i.e. when device volume is 100,
    application volume is 5). Volume mixer remembers the setting so I only have
    to do the adjustment once for each application. This works fine for most apps
    such as WMP etc. But for IE7, I found my setting is not remembered. So I have
    to adjust the volume everytime.
    Is there anywhere (registry etc.) I can manually specify volume setting for
    IE7?

    Try disabling AV and Firewall software which is known to block Registry
    Changes. Or, go into Safe Mode and make the changes.

    Windows integration
    Register your program's sounds in the Windows Sounds registry. Doing so
    allows the Windows Vista volume mixer to add a slider for your program.
    Register your program's custom sound events. Doing so allows the Windows
    Sound control panel item to display them. Create the following key for each
    custom sound event: HKEY_CURRENT_USER | AppEvents | Event Labels | EventName
    = Event Name.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default
    Click the + to expand the menu. You will find the sounds installed on your
    system
