lol sorry, I was just copy pasting what other people said. Here i'll try drawing a design in paint. So basically there are 2 different designs, both have transparent and orb background forms. If it's to hard to get those colours or if you think it won't look good just do the original please.



Anyone know about the problems I experienced in the edited part of my post?
Got pushed back a few pages just making sure you saw it. Anyway, could anyone make a start button out of the TF2 logo - that's all I want at this point. Please someone

Thanks lol I didn't notice the zip file, hey it cuts off the bottom of the start button when in small icons mode. Is there a way to fix this? Don't mean to bother you any more It's minor.

Ok thanks, by the way I tried to install Grim's Ultimate Icon Pack 64 again. It went through the installation, my taskbar disappeared and I restarted. Again it took me to the login screen and I couldn't see my user, except this time I could see the log in screen background. I had to do a system restore again. What's the problem?

Did you read the instructions and do everything that was mentioned like turning off UAC and running the uninstall script before trying to install a different set, are you using the pack that matches your build number, have you checked to make sure there are no backup dll's still remaining, all of those things are very important for it to work.
