Kaspersky is complaining about the included 64-bit explorer.exe in latest directory:
PDM.Invader (loader)
PDM.Keylogger
PDM.Hidden data sending

It comes from a genuine Windows 7, I don't know what Kaspersky can find but there's no problem with it.

I'm sorry but google translate didn't help, I only understand french or english, or any language that google translate is good at.
I'll be most happy to know many more languages, I've tried others, but practice is the key, and french and english is all I can have everyday...

Even if you don't know english very well, please consider trying, there's no problem in mistakes and I'll try to help you :)

When i followed you instructions for changing the icons, it worked, but when I click the new, cool looking icon, it opens the program on another icon on the taskbar, using the standard icon. Help?

Oh you may be speaking about itunes or maybe some other specific programs. Tell me the names and I may help if I've got the knowledge, but maybe Google would help you more than me :)

Thanks for the reply! It actually fixed itself after awhile, maybe after the taskbar refreshed itself or something. The programs I've got on it are Firefox, Windows Explorer, Steam and iTunes.
Anyway, that part is fixed, but now that I've rebooted by computer, the orb is back to normal. How do I get yours to be persistent?

ap-graphik Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011
Glad to hear it.

The only way that the orb could change happen on some rare Windows Updates that changes the explorer.exe, so it would make the orb go back to normal. These updates are very rare but it seems it happened while you've changed it.

You'll have to change the explorer.exe again and it will stay. But you have to be careful to use the right versions of the explorer.exe. I write the full version with my orbs, just check you've got the same.

I also write "last version" for the last updated version of the explorer.exe to use if you're doing the Windows Updates.

There are other ways to change the orb that you could find on dA, that will modify your own explorer.exe instead of actually changing it for example. Or use Restorator to change the png inside your own explorer.exe (the cleanest way but maybe the "hardest" for some people).

The included 6809 BMP file works fine on the small taskbar on top. So all you need is that 6809.bmp file and a program like 'Windows 7 Start Orb Changer', which you can find here on DA, and you can do it yourself, no need to mess around with explorer.exe files.

Thank you AP-GRAPHIK. :dance:

Not yet by me but I'm sure you could find another one on dA, as this is based on the Token series, make a little search with "token" in the start orb gallery :)
