I think they were made for XP as 54x162 is the largest area you have to work in, so anything larger wont work unless you resize it.

I resized the orbs TheBull did for me to 54x162 but they come out funny (had the top cut off or looked stratched). I got it finally to fit but then there was a black square behind it (even at 32 bit).

I must have done something wrong but don't know what. Any ideas?

Maybe the black wasn't black enough, the black areas represent full transparency, so if it is not completely black and is instead a very dark Grey you will not have full transparency and it will appear as black.
