OR follow this simple tutorial :

HOW TO REPLACE EXPLORER.EXE :
--------------------------------------------

Method 1 :
********

Use this easy-to-use tool : Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria


Method 2 :
********

add a "take ownership" shortcut to your right-click :)

and use the old trick by using the task manager, end explorer.exe, then browse and replace :)


Method 3 : (thanks to yayme)

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

and now it works. :)

XP doesn't have the start menu icon in explorer.exe, so you have to modify a theme or create one if you want to get it.
