Rhonda from CO asks:

I’ve heard that Windows 7 was advanced and all, but my computer keeps talking to me! How do I make it stop?

Sounds like you’re dealing with Microsoft Narrator, which is part of Window’s accessibility options. For one reason or another it got turned on and set to execute when you start your computer, but thankfully there’s an easy way to turn it off.

Just click Start, and in the Search Box type “Narrator”, minus the quotes. A selection should appear at the top of the list. Click on it and you’ll be taken to the narrator control panel.

It looks like this:

Click the “Control whether Narrator starts when I log on”link at the bottom of the dialog box.

In the next window un-check the box that says “Turn on Narrator” and click OK.

Ahh, blissful silence, but should you want to turn Narrator back on, just follow the same steps and re-check the box!
