How to fix the annoying 'ding' sound on changing volume?

Whenever I change my system sound from the slider at the bottom (Volume Mixer) - it plays a 'Ding' sound as if I did a crime and it is really annoying. I know I can go to Sound settings in Control Panel and change the sound of 'Default Beep' to 'None' or something less painful to ears. But that's not what I want - as Windows should still alert me when I'm really doing a Crime and I guess all the  applications/windows modules relying on the "Default Beep" would be affected by my change. How to just tell the volume slider to shut up?

I would suppose you can also go tell Windows that the default beep sound effect is "none", so that nothing ever plays that sound.  But then if another program tries to cause a beep, you'll hear nothing.  So for that reason, I prefer to use the "roll your mouse" method.
