I was doing it when I haven't even seen this post. XD

Fair enough. Any chance of darkening it though?

That's because they are .png instead of .bmp, I changed them in photo gallery but they lost their transparency.

Maybe someone with Photoshop will fix them for you.

No, they can be used with win 7 start orb changer from the right click context menu!
That software accepts png format and converts it to bmp files in all sizes (for all dpi) with premultiplied alpha.
Now puts it into C:\Windows\expstart.exe and runs it as a replacement for explorer.exe.

So, it doesn't pacth system resources, tough it can edit explorer.exe if you click restore the original start orb.

You need special bmp files if you willing to path it yourself.

I wasn't aware the start button changer used .png, I've always used .bmp,

I don't know why it wont work for her then.
