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

Now all we need is a way to change Vista's start.

Is there a way to change Vista's start menu button? If so, please make a video showing how!

I haven't tried. This video was made prior to Vista's real release. Vista's start button does not have text, so you can't add text.

Next time, add some more work onto this project.

There was very little interactivity. I go onto Newgrounds to see interactive movies, not watching someone change their start menu text. Also, you should tell people you can (and should) make the hacked explorer.exe another copy of the original explorer.exe so that you can revert back to the original explorer.exe. Please try harder on future episodes. 3/10
