I've got the error that swarfega had at first, and you are meant to press continue, but the browse for start button window still stays up. So instead of pressing 'OK' again (that brings uo the error again) I press cancel. On the program window, there is a preview of the orb that I wanted. The only button I can press is browse, which is what I don't want to do. How exactly do I make the program change it?

Did you right click on the application and run it as administrator? If there's a window prompt, click on continue. Once the application is running, you have to click on "Change orb".

Nope, still not working. But i clicked on a different orb, and it didn't bring up any errors. It closed explorer but never restarted. Tried to open it in task manager, but couldn't find explorer.exe. There was an explorer.old file, changed the file extension back to exe. Definitely not trying that program again.

Wait a mo, maybe it doesn't work on a x64 OS?

On the main view of the application, leave the "Don't restart explorer now" unchecked. I'm using Win 7 x64, it works.

Yes, that was unchecked, but it didn't restart explorer because it had changed the executable into a file.
