I took the original start orb from explorer.exe, extracted the file called 6801.bmp, opened it in PS, brushed the old orbs over with the brushing tool, then i placed the other bmp (The original power button) and resized it before i placed it.

You need to make sure you save as a 32bit Bitmap image and also make sure the background is totally black.

I'm having a minor problem. I can't use a custom theme because the files I need to modify won't (modify). I've tried UXCore Style and I've taken ownership of the files but when I try to paste in the new files I can't because it says the file is in use. What do I have to do to change these files? Strange that UXCore Style isn't working anymore
