Windows 7: StartOrb resets after reboot

StartOrb resets after reboot

Hello -

I've set a custom explorer.exe file on my PC. However, whenever I reboot it resets to the default Windows startorb.

What am I doing wrong? I've renamed the original explorer.exe file and placed the new one in the same folder location. I've confirmed that both files (old & new) are in the correct location upon boot up.

Welcome to the forum,

I'm not sure why your's is doing that but this tool here,

Windows 7 Start Button Changer by =Kishan-Bagaria on deviantART

Is the easiest, fastest way to change a start orb.

Thanks for the tool, however I'd like to find out why it's not working first. I have a lot to learn about Windows 7 - I admit - but I'd prefer to not use tools when I don't quite understand what they're doing.
