Koen,
Please contact your Domain Administrator.
Such things fall into his domain.

If your domain administrator needs assistance, which would greatly surprise me, then he is certainly welcome to post a msg in SevenForums asking for assistance.

Making such as change on a computer that you own is one thing, however, I do not advise that you do this on your work computer.

I agree with Karl. You do not want to jeopardize your job by inadvertently damaging a company-owned computer. It is most likely the old Start button was used because it is familiar to the employees and the Admins are attempting to avoid unnecessary questions from employees not familiar with the new icon.

We cannot undertake the liability of a business-owned computer system, and you should check your employer's Acceptable Usage Policy to ensure that you are not in breach of Company rules by attempting to fix this issue.

I suggest that you contact your IT Department for assistance.
