My start menu orb does not change!

Hi. I am putting a lot of effort into making my OS look good, and I am currently using Windows 7. I am trying to change the start menu orb, but it just does not change! I have tried using Restorator, and "prehacked" explorer.exe's. Nothing happens!

Start Menu Button - Change

How can I fix it? I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

And for those who use the larger DPI's i.e 125% , 150% you need to change:

6806 - 66 x 198
6807 - 81 x 243
6808 - 106 x 318
Have not tried that...stay tuned for feedback

I have 66x198, but if I resize the images they become blurry, and I cannot find any orbs in my size or larger (which looks fine if I make them smaller).
