yes you can..
first download resource tuner.
Then open explorer.exe with resource tuner then find the orb bitmap.
Then replace the bitmap with one of you own.
save the new explorer.exe in any other dir.
Take ownership of the original explorer.exe and then rename it to explorer.exe.bak.
Then past the new explorer.exe there and restart.

And you are done.
