    :/ I've seen somewhere a tutorial on how to change START to something else you wanted. Anyone know how?

    Not sure. I can't use it as I am using msstyles. Click about & check the home page.

    Looks like it's dead then. Have you tried a google for something similar. I'll see what I can find now.

    I'd suggest to use Resource Hacker.

    Open Explorer.exe in ResourceHacker, edit the word START in stringtables 37 (for xp-look) and 38 (for classic look), hit compile script, save as Explorer1.exe to the Windows directory.
    Change the registry value for Shell to Explorer1.exe at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    reboot.
