Beeping Computers !

Disable the anoying system beeps within Terminal Services 
Whilst I have been working on a Windows 2008 Server remotely using RDP I found that even though the Windows Audio service is disabled and I chose not to play my remote computer sounds from the RDP settings (see below) I was still getting the system beeps passed through to my machine.
To solve the problem requires a little registry hack. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlTerminal Server and set the DisableBeep (REG_DWORD) key to 0x1. A quick rebbot later and the system beeps are gone.
