  4. aku ubah jadi amanz 😀 tapi dah tuko balik sebab guna vista transformation :d

  5. setakat ni apa pendapat kau tentang vista? best tak?

  6. I have tested this behavior on XP. Tool works fine but when the system is restarted or unlocked from locked mode, the start button gets changed to default.

  7. have you tried the geek method? 😀

  8. yeah, but resourse hacker can do mso much more that the start button. explorer.exe has so little inside it. resourse hack shell32.dll and luna.msstyles

    my taskbar is pink and every button in my start menu (apart from shortcuts) has a different name.
    also my taskbar properties have diff labels.

    so fun resourse hacking windows.
