RT7LITE Start Menu Orb change not working

Hey all, name's Logan, first time posting in this fine forum!

I have a problem when trying to change the orb for my custom Win 7 ultimate x64 image.
I've added a explorer.exe that i've changed with Restorator 2007. When the install is done, the orb is invisible and when hovering over it, the mouseover effect works and i can se my custom orb though inverted and abnormal.

I would appreciate any thought, help or possible solutions to this, thanks a lot! :)

or maybe if u want, try to uninstall RT7LITE, clean ur registry & give windows 7 Start Orb Changer 2.6 a try after a reboot. it appears to be downloadable all over the net.
