changing the text of start button

Well the simplest and the least time consuming way of changing the Start button text is described below:

Step 1:

Create a system restore point just incase if something goes wrong you can roll back to the original settings. Make a back up copy of explorer.exe in a safe place, maybe in a different folder.

Step 2:

You would need to download a small freeware utility called Resource Hacker.

Step 3:

Open Resource Hacker utility. Click on File ---> Open. Type "explorer.exe" in the text box.

Step 4:

Expand String Table ---> 37 from the tree view and click on 1033

Step 5:

From the right window next to where start is written in front of 578 edit the text to what you want on your start button. For example I edited it to INFOFREAKZ.

Step 6:

Click on the "Compile Script" button on top of the right window. Now click on File ---> Save as ----> INFOFREAKZ.exe

Step 7: Open registry editor by clicking on Start ---> Run and typing "regedit" at the text box. Navigate to HKEY_Local_Machine -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows NT -> CurrentVersion -> Winlogon

From the right pane double click on shell and replace "explorer.exe" with "INFOFREAKZ.exe"

Step 8: Restart your computer to see the changes.
