Select show hidden folders in your foler options and then go to, C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local and delete the IconCache.db file and then restart, then you need to do a disk cleanup and select the thumbnail cache and delete that as well, then after a restart they should all be changed, if not then repeate both of those untill it works.

Dunno if this has been posted yet, but a nice little app for changing the Start button has been released. Might make it easier for some people who aren't comfortable using resource hackers or the like yet.

I presume you managed to sort the problem Aceeze? sorry for asking when it seems so obvious but I like to make sure.


@Everyone:

We should have a brand new installer very soon (first post has been updated) which will help with a lot of the unforeseen problems seen so far.

The new installer is being wrote in VB.Net instead of a WindowsNT command script which gives me alot more API's to play with.

(yeah, I know.. VB sucks in the eyes of the elite but it beats the old command prompt lol!)

Thank you. But do you think you can fix it. As It looks a little rough around the outside of the orb & if you could please make the size a little smaller as it overlaps the superbar a bit at the top. If you apply it as your start orb you will get a better idea what i am talking about. Other that that it looks good & I am thankful for you making it for me.
