Looks like the program you link to is the same as the one in my post. Until few months ago CSMenu and Classic Start Menu were two separate applications. CSMenu was free, didn't have search, and very old versions of it did require StartKiller (not anymore). Classic Start Menu is not free ($20), DOES have search, and has never needed StartKiller. So please update your tutorial by removing the StartKiller part. No start menu application requires it anymore.
Last year the original developer of CSMenu abandoned the project and the author of Classic Start Menu took over and offered it as a free alternative to his paid software. But it looks like CSMenu can't be downloaded anymore. All links now point to the paid software. I don't know if this is temporarily broken, or done on purpose. Maybe he is trying to rename the paid software to CSMenu (it is a catchy name). Either way, it is not a big loss because CSMenu was never that good to begin with. There were many complaints about bugs (see here: CSMenu | Google Groups
) and the (new) author hasn't done anything to fix them.
So if you need search (and have 20 bucks) get Classic Start Menu (it may be officially called CSMenu now).
If you don't need the search, get one of these free applications: http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/index.html http://usuarios.multimania.es/coreaf...nstartmenu.htm http://www.vistastartmenu.com/index.html

(this one is NOT FREE, but I include it for completeness)
