You should be able to change it in the same way you'd change the icon manually in Windows 7 Home Premium+ [Sure you can't use programs because they weren't designed for basic and starter]. What you do is get Reshacker and go to your explorer.exe .... you know what I don't know if it would be in the same location so just send me a copy of your explorer and the start button you want and I'll see what I can do.
