Restorator -> File -> open " Ctrl+0" ->find explorer.exe
explorer.exe -> Bitmap -> replace PNG 6801 , 6805 , 6809 > Assingn..-> Assign To > save
Use TakeOwnerShip to replace explorer.exe

That one on the right... Where did you find it?
That would be an awesome Windows 7 orb replacement!
I picked it up on the Deviant Art web site under customization then visual styles then vista themes. I am trying to make the one on the left the start button for a visual style.
I am a newbee to modding...
Thanks for the help everyone...

Does anyone else get the impression that cclloyd9785, asfaltas, and heliosintrism are the same person?
All are new to WM and have a very low post count, speak the same way and want the same things..
i got the images converted finally! however there is still the issue with them being very faint. like they have been set at 50% opacity or something its very frustrating. any ideas?

im trying to make one too with fireworks, but im not having any luck. i tried what i did in vista to get it transparent by putting a black rectangle in the background and setting its opacity from 100 to 1 so you couldn't see it. then saving it as bmp and replacing it in explorer. it worked but its very very faint you can barely see it! and during mouse over and down the background turns white then goes back to transparent. can i possibly get a walk through or could someone convert them for me since i don't have ps. please! and thank you!
Try using a Grey Some where closer to black then white, on the Alpha Channel. over where you want it to be some what transparent.
I also actually had to crop my picture to the four or five different sizes that where in explorer.exe. Then I had to replace them all to get my start button to appear.... well It didn't change after I changed the first one so I just went a head to cropped it four or so times. saving it each time.
To get my white background to disappear was paint change the background to black.
