Windows 7: Vista Orb on startup?

Vista Orb on startup?


This has been bothering me for a while now. I'll just go straight to the point. Can you reactivate the Windows Orb ()that appeared when Vista started up, but so it appears in Windows 7? Thanks for any help, if you can give links for third party downloads I would much appreciate that

Once again, thanks.

Vista Startup Screen on Win 7 installation
This may seem trivial, but it's bugging me. For some reason, my clean installation on my HTPC still boots with the old Vista startup screen (the green scrolling bar). I really like the new one that 7 has with the floating colors that come together to form the "windows" logo that works fine on...
