But these are great! Thanks guys! Especially love the peeking android!
Using restorator to change start orbs is not wise decision , you know. There you are do a much more jobs. Better you use Win 7 Start Button Changer 2.6 by =Kishan-Bagaria on deviantART . It does all the jobs in one mouse click, and in one second

You can also create and apply start orbs using StartOrbz, created by our forum member Blizarro

The StartOrbz by Blizarro works a treat, I recommend using that.
Even scales down hi-res to prevent that clipping in post #4 & #5, as long as you use a square source image(s) to start with.

Also, just to note, you'll need write access to explorer.exe with the account you use it on else you'll get some funky error.
