Renaming The Start Button:

To rename the start button, you will need a hex editor.My preference is UltraEditCopy the \windows\explore.exe file to a new name (e.g. explorer_1.exe)With the hex editor, open that file and go to offset 412b6You will see the word start with blanks between each letterEdit it be any 5 characters or lessSave the fileBoot to DOSCopy the existing c:\windows\explorer.exe to explorer.orgCopy explorer_1.exe to explorer.exeYou will also need to replace the explorer.exe in the c:\windows\system32\dllcache file as well with the new one.Note: If the partition is NTFS and you can't access the files from DOS:Start RegeditGo to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon.Change the value of Shell from Explorer.exe to explorer_1.exe
