Windows 7 Home Basic x64 service pack 1
 
 

I'm using windows 7 home basic x64. Recently, I used a ubuntu skin pack for customizing windows. The start orb was replaced by a ubuntu start button like the one bellow.
I wanted my windows start orb back, so I had "windows 7 start orb loader" with which i loaded my original start orb and clicked "Save changes" but a message " windows start orb configuration has stopped working appeared.
Please help me get my start orb.
I've attached a screen shot of the button.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to three times with a reboot between each scan.

If you use the Universal Theme Patcher to enable the custom theme you'll need to run it again after the above scan.

Let us know if this worked.

The problem is you have two Windows Start Orb Managers (WSOM) operating at the same time. One has got to cancel the other out, since two can't be running at the same time. That was my problem. In your case, you need to find the WSOM that came with your Ubuntu skin pack. On it, restore original, uninstall and delete what else is left over. Go to the WSOM you downloaded and click restore the default orb. It should work for you then.
Good luck. ;3
