HOW TO CHANGE YOUR START ORB :
------------------------------------------

Method 1 :
********

Use this other tool to change the exe : Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria


Method 2 :
********

add a "take ownership" shortcut to your right-click :)
[link]
and use the old trick by using the task manager, end explorer.exe, then browse and replace :)


Method 3 : (thanks to yayme)
********

[link]



Or you can use a resources hacker like ResHacker or Restorator in order to change the picture inside the explorer.exe.

(C:Windowsexplorer.exe)




Don't hesitate to ask if you encounter problems !!!






HOW TO CHANGE ICONS ON THE SUPERBAR :

First, place your shortcut on the desktop, change icon by : right-click > Properties > Change icons > browse..... > OK > OK
only then place this shortcut on the superbar,
and now it works. :)






I hope you like it !

Another option you may want to consider for changing the start orb in Windows 7 is : [link] its a tiny app that you run as Administrator, click on the orb in the top right, choose the image you want to use for the orb, DONE! maybe add that in a 4th method for your users Regardless, looks great, works perfectly, much better for me than the stock garbage! THANK YOU!

so uhm... im working on fixing it right now but the windows theme installer link you posted, when i installed the explorerer.exe and i also installed a new ExplorerFrame.dll because its included in this them i have so i thought why not. Now unless i start my computer in safe mode it get into a boot loop that i have to cut the power to get out of i was wondering if anyone knew any way to either fix it or if they at least knew what was causing it. :/ thanks!
