    Excellent! I was messing around with this a while ago (changing the start orb) but the method I was using always turned off the Task scheduler for some reason... I've tested this and it seems fine..

    Nice find sarge.. :)

    Excellent post and find! :) Been messing around with this for a while now and it seems to be very stable and does exactly what it's supposed to! :)

    Hey kemical, got this when clicking on the attachment link;
    [h=2]Message[/h] Invalid Attachment specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator

    I downloaded the 44 and added them to the Windows 7 Start Button Changer 10 sample orb folder, should work out pretty good.

    Nice find

    Hi Adam,

    yup sorry I had to make room for more attachments which meant I had to delete some old files. Since I'm not an Admin any more I don't have the tweaks that go with the title.

    Back to the start orbs. In the end i stopped using them as I realised it was messing with the Task Scheduler. I do still have the above orbs though and would be more than happy to email them over if requested.. :)

    Yes, if you could email them to me, that would be great.
    Have you tried adding them to WinRar archive to a zip file, upload to a file host and then post the link?
    Kind of round about, but it always works great for me.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to share a picture.

    These are the Windows Start Button Changer, start orbs, the original 10 that comes with WSBC and then I added the 44 that kemical posted above and then using Start Orb Creator, also mention by kemical, I made 3 of my own, which are the last 3 in the pic.
    Pretty cool, but now it's way too many choices; rofl3.
