Windows 7: Problem customizing Start Orbs.

Problem customizing Start Orbs.

I tried to customize my start orb yesterday, went great and i even ended up restoring pc three times. What i did was follow instructions on sevenforums.com. I got the restorator trial version and everything. Followed every step to the letter. Restarted and my baby grew teeth, she was very very rough((((. There was an error with the new explorer save file.

** How since it worked for everyone else?
so i then retried it from the top and it happened again.
Restored it, redownloaded Restorator 2007 and did it again, i then noted that when restorator saves the .exe file on the trial period, something else is added to the mix apparently. But not sure entirely.

I just need suggestions as to what i might have done wrong and if i need to pay 80 bucks, just to change a bloody start orb. what r my options?

Thanks in advance.

You might have missed something small. As an alternative look at this [link] tutorial also. Scroll a bit down, and take special note of xxrazor's tut. There are also other related tutorials to find there.

Hope this helps!

Oki i just changed the start button, if anyone encounters this problem after replacin the explorer.exe file, Make sure u use the windows folder, and not a system 32.

eg. X:\Windows\explorer.exe
not x:\Windows\system32\explorer.exe


i will just to add that, the problem had nothing to do with restorator.

Difference between BMP and PNG? (Start Orbs)
I was about to make some custom Start Orbs. I was wandering what was the difference between BMP and PNG when it came to Start Orbs. Would it even matter which one you used? Because I usually use the PNG file when choosing my Start Orb. I don't see a difference when using a BMP file though. ...
