Windows 7: Start Orb Problems

Start Orb Problems

I have encountered the same problem while trying to change my start orb, all wile trying many different applications.

I run as administrator as you are supposed to, I select change and choose the orb I would like.

here is where the problem occurs. When I double click on the start orb I would like, instead of applying the the start orb it opens 'Libraries'.

You can see where it shows that I have selected a new start orb, but when you look at the on that I actually have, it has not yet changed.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks, John

Very odd !

Try with the latest version : Windows 7 Start Orb Changer v4 by =Kishan-Bagaria on deviantART .

If still not works, run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker , try it again, and report back .
