Step 1.

Download the Take Ownership context menu shortcut then unzip it and right on the reg file and select merge.http://www.sevenforums.com/attachme...23-take-ownership-shortcut-take_ownership.zip

Step 2.

Navigate to c:\ and Take Ownership of the Windows Folder.



Step 3.

Download and install Restorator 2007.http://www.bome.com/Restorator/download.html (this is trial software)

Step 4.

Now run Restorator 2007 and open explorer in c:\Windows



Step 5.

Have your new Start Orb/Button ready on the desktop ready to use.

Step 6.

In the left pane in Restorator you will see a folder called Bitmap, expand that folder and you will see a bunch of numbers and each of those numbers represents a Start orb that if clicked on will show you a preview in the Right pane, the main images you need to worry about are 6801, 6805 and 6809.



NOTE
If you are using a larger dpi then the Default Windows dpi then you will have to change the larger start orbs to match your dpi.



Step 7.

Now simply left click and hold on the new Start Orb/Button on your Desktop and drag it onto the relevant numbers in the left pane in Restorator and they will automatically be replaced with your new Start Orb/button.



Step 8.

Right Click on your taskbar and select Start Task Manager and in the processes tab select explorer and then select end process.





Step 9.

Now back in Restorator hit the save button and it will save your new Start Orb/Button and it will create a backup of explorer.exe called explorer backup.exe which you can restore back to default latter if you need to.




Step 10.

Go back to Task Manager and in the menu select New Task (Run...) and type c:\windows\explorer.exe and hit enter, then close Task Manager and Restorator and your done.
