Windows 7: Start Orb won't change

08 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
Start Orb won't change

This seems to only be a problem with one theme so far, but I can't get the Start Orb to change with this theme.

NEXTlevel port for Win7 by =fediaFedia on deviantART

I took ownership of Explorer, I downloaded the x64 Explorer from the link provided on his deviantART page, replaced the original Explorer with it, and rebooted, but the orb is still the standard Windows 7 orb. The creator's comment board yielded no answers, so I'm wondering if anyone here has any ideas. Replacing Explorer has worked with other themes but not this one for some reason. If anyone else can give it a try, that'd be great, thanks.
