Extract the "Sound" folder to your World of Warcraft>Data folder.
To uninstall simply delete the Sound folder.
To unmute specific sounds, delete both the .ogg & .wav versions of the files, if you have trouble finding a specific sound, post in the comments.

There are .ogg and .wav versions of each sound as some sounds can only be muted by one type, since there is no way to know which one without going in game and testing each sound I have simply included both regardless.
