Windows 7: Modify Basic Start Button

Modify Basic Start Button

With a non-aero Basic Theme, the start button looks like the classic 'Start' button.
How do you rename the text on the start button? I am using the basic theme and would used to be able to edit explorer.exe and rename the 'Start' letters in the old style start button. I reviewed resource hacker and cannot find where this is now located in windows 7 (explorer.exe contains the orb, but not the windows logo/'Start'). Do you know what file this information was moved to?

Nope. That link supplies how to change the 'Orb' not when windows 7 uses the classic basic start menu Theme.

If you are using the basic start menu, then you may be out of luck...

there must be a way... it has to get the information from some file. (I just can't find it)
