There is an interactive version of this (by me) here (remove all spaces in the URL!): /portal/view/353610

This is a hack to change the word "Start" on your Windows XP computer to something else.
(EDIT!: I fixed the audio sync error!)

You can get Resource Hacker here: ourcehacker/
You can get Process Explorer here: technet/sysinternals/util ities/ProcessExplorer.msp x

(NG puts spaces into URLs, so if the URLs don't work, look for and remove spaces.)

Disclaimer!!: This hack requires you to change a file that comes with your computer and is a CRITICAL component for the proper operation of your computer! Please attempt at your own risk, I do not offer any warranty of any kind. If you are secure in your abilities to hack a CRITICAL component of your computer, please try this, its neat! It adds some extra personality to your computer!

Note: Please submit this to the Windows Collection please! Thankies! :-D

Why would a tutorial be on Newgrounds? I mean, it is on the Windows Parodies collection and many would find it useless. Besides, anyone could make a better tutorial than this!

jpoke89 responds:

I made a better tutorial than this. It's here because people obviously liked it,as it was not blammed, and rated high enough that I can't delete it. Someone also liked it enough to put it into a collection, lol, so I don't know what your issue is.

EDIT: Also, so much for constructive criticism...
