Maybe not, I'll try again.

EDIT, nah, I think I'll pass this. The download site seems to be tainted and I'm getting the error page again no matter how I try to do it.

Hello everyone. I took advantage of this utility. The program has written that the changes made​​, I rebooted the computer, and the button has not changed. Why is it so?

Start Orbs Button

Does anybody here make "Start Orbs Button?" I made a customize start orb button recently. I'm not quite good at it and would like to get a couple pointers on how to make it look better/perfect like the ones already here...

The "3rd One" I'm having issue with. It's higher then the first two, I can't seem to get it right.

That looks like something made with Rainmeter or Samurize, but more likely Rainmeter.

This is a rather old and long-winded way to change your start orb image.. I'd recommend you try Kishan's Windows 7 Start Orb Changer instead, dead simple to use and it works brilliantly.
