What is Windows Sound Schemes?

A Windows sound-scheme is a set of sounds that signal certain events, like starting up and shutting down Windows or getting a new email or when Windows displays an error message. These are usually about a second or two long, with the exception of the login and logoff sounds which are about 6~7 seconds in length.
