Windows 7: StartOrbz Error (Was unable to unlock explorer.exe)

StartOrbz Error (Was unable to unlock explorer.exe)

Hi!
I just downloaded StartOrbz Studio, but when I try to change my Start Orb, an error appears.

If anyone knows how to fix it, please tell me :/

This is the error and my current processes:
StartOrbz Error (Was unable to unlock explorer.exe)-error.jpg

Thanks!

------------------------------------ EDIT ----------------------------------------------------

I changed the file permissions on the Security tab (right click> Properties) and added my user to be able to modify the file. It worked.

Have never used that particular program, I use the Windows Club "Windows 7 Start Orb Changer". Works like a charm! But anyway I know for it you have to have certain things enabled like Animations etc. in your Performance options.

I tried that, but when I restarted the computer, the Start Orb was the Windows' one.



I solved the problem, thanks, anyway!
