Windows 7: Windows Start Button Not Working Right

ok...for me i prefer to edit my startup button manually using reshacker. and usually bmp that u need to change is 01,05,09

backup is a must and editing explorer.exe must be done in a very cautious way

well first time i try to change my start button, im using kishan software . its a nice software unfortunately it doesnt work me. my explorer.exe was messed up and i restarted my pc with a blank desktop because explorer.exe couldnt work. i think ive done enough with reinstall,restore,repair and at the end i just use reshacker to change my start button.

watching orb start button all the time is boring though

Hmm...I don't think reshacker would work for me, Ivo created classic shell ( which is the best that I have yet to find for replacing the start menu ) he wanted to make the program more funtional, ( which unfortunatly does not include the 3rd state of the start menu button , just the 1st & 2nd)
- lol when I posted my comment I was saying that Ivo was funny ( I did not see your post...lol)
hmm...maybe I will have to just switch programs for the start menu ...I want to change my start menu to this: http://www.micro.com.pk/it/hardware/image027.jpg with the windows 98 icons and everything ( as opposed to the windows xp icons...) does anyone know of another program that I can use to replace my windows 7 start menu to a classic menu, and have windows 98 icons?
Thanks
- I hate to be giving up on classic shell though...I cannot find a better replacement for it...

Hmm...yeah...sticking with Ivo is the best thing to do because he creates such an awsome program ( that I cannot find an alternative to...I have used many...=P maybe all of them out there...I doubt it though...) But I do not think he will find a new way to control the start button very shortly (well...maybe...he was the one who created classic shell in the first place after all...) Hmm...I think that the simplest way of dealing with the start button for classic shell is to , instead of having just 1st & 2nd state, have 1st and 3rd... ( this would make it so that it would not change when the mouse hovers over it, and I do not use that state anyways... )
Maybe an option to switch between just 1st & 2nd state, 1st& 3rd, 2nd&3rd for the start button, would that be possible?
