Windows 7: Changing 7 start orb

Changing 7 start orb

I honestly can't seem to find any info on it... how exactly does one change the start orb in 7? It used to be in the msstyles file, but it looks like it's packed up and headed elsewhere.

I personally love Windows 7's start button. Unlike Vista's where it just lights up when hovering over it, it actually slowly lights the four flag colors.

Can you show us the pic of the BMP? and how the orb looks when you have the start menu open?

Huh That looks weird. Normally i would blame the orb for it, it might have been done wrong. But i'm not sure. Can you upload the BMP inside a ZIP to here, so i can test if it shows the same way on my system?
