Start Menu image??

Need assistance please.

I believe I read somewhere where you can replace the white area of the start menu with a different color background.... But I'm blanking on the where (I read the info) and the how (to do it).

Can someone provide me with the info?

Restorator or Resource Hacker, either one you want to use. Resource Hacker is free, but Restorator is easier and has more features.
