Windows 7: Custom Themes, Icons and Start Buttons.

Does anybody have the default start button from the first betas (about 7030)?
Its normal state was the same as it is now but the clicked (and hover) state was like it is in the attachment (I found it on the Internet, so it's quite small).

OK, I know it's been mentioned in this thread, and I have gone back and forth looking for it, but can't seem to find it.

I downloaded the first file below in .png format, converted it to 32-bit .bmp with Photoshop, and then used Restorator to put it into explorer.exe. Did I miss a step? Because it came out like the screenshot. Really, really bright.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Open the image in PS and delete the Alpha channel and it should be better I hope.
