How did you change it?

If you used a resource hacker, its most likely System File Protection replacing your file with the original.

How to remove file protection -

Start > Run :

Type : %windir%\system32\restore\filelist.xml

Here, add the following between the two first <Exclude>'s

<REC>%windir%\filename.exe</REC>

Where filename.exe is the name of the file you have been modifying ofcourse.

I would add of course, that disabling SFP may cause more problems than a funky start button in the future...:)

Its not something I'd recommend, but thats up to the user, I guess...

This is the way i did it, i used resource hacker, opened up explorer.exe, made the changes i wanted, ctrl-alt-del end explorer.exe, in resource hacker, save explorer.exe, in the ctrl alt del menu, file, new task, run explorer.exe

Disabling file protection for one file dosnt cause any problems, in this case explorer.exe-

I've had this tweak ever since i explained how to do it on the old forum, and have had no problems whatsoever that had any connection to my start button.

I apologize, my mistake.

I wasnt aware that you could manually disable SFP for just one file.

While on topic, and saving me from posting a new thread. What s the easiest way to change my start button? I got the pack from the downloads section, and want to try them out.

I would like to not install yet another program just to do it, but if I have to I suppose I will. Can't I just edit my reg or something?

Yeah.. How do you change the color of the start button without having to install StyleXP og windowblinds!?

I've got ResHack og the startbutton pack.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
