Windows 7: Windows 7 Classic Theme Start Button Icon

Hello all.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to change the windows 7 start button icon. I want to change it from the windows xp logo to a win98 windows logo.

I don't use the Windows 7 Aero theme. I use the Windows classic theme, and I would like to change icon on the start menu to the Windows 98 style windows logo rather than the Windows XP logo. Here is a picture for reference.



The little windows XP log I want to go...

Thank you,

Jason
