Changing windows start orb, start orb looks like static

I'm trying to change my start orb to this...

However, even though it changes without stating any errors, it does not display
as i expected it to. It has a weird static look to it.

I'm using Windows 7 start orb changer v5 by doors to windows,
I have no idea if this is the best one available could someone please tell me
either whats going wrong or suggest a better start orb changer to use.

Windows Start Up Fail after changing msconfig maxmem - help!
I had problems installing Winzip on my machine. An on-line help recommended going to msconfig and reducing maxmem to 256. Having done that, Windows now fails to start up. Startup Repair doesn't fix it. I have tried system restore to before the Winzip downloads. Still fails.

Changing the Start menu to Windows 2000 style
In Windows 7 Ultimate, how do you change the Start menu to look like it does in Windows 2000? I.e. no icon, user name, list of recently run programs, etc. I prefer it when I click the Start button I see the familiar menus, such as Programs, Settings, Search, etc. Thanks.
