    Anyone have any experience with the Vista start "Orb" reverting to the
    square start button of XP??

    How could they?

    That particular bitmap is not located in any of the resource files for Vista
    so it literally can't do that.

    Screenshot for proof then, please.

    It surely MUST be in there somewhere because you can set your start menu and
    toolbars to XPSP2. If you can do that, then there has to be a way to capture
    the bitmaps.

    Why would I have to prove it to you???
    You thing I'm making it up to amuse myself?

  8. Shane,

    Where do you get your incorrect information from?

    If you have a list of all the resources Vista uses, please pass along as I'd
    like to dig into them. The traditional start menu button is included. Just
    turn off all the fancy stuff about Vista and the normal rectangle image
    comes right back.


    You can loose it if you have performance turned down in the system
    properties. I also remember somewhere in the appearance options to have the
    traditional menus, toolbars and the likes.

    Thanks, I'll keep looking... turns out it may be related to alcohol 120%.
    It's not my system, just trying to help someone and thats the last thing she
    installed before it changed.
