You changed the start orb and so as the contents of the original file and so the detection.
My AV too pops up about this. But its no big deal as long as it is at %windir%\explorer.exe and %windir%\SysWOW64\explorer.exe (on x64 machines) and has the same checksums (MD5, SHA-1 etc.) as of the original.
