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

It's likely a Windows update/file protection issue. Not something I can really help you with, sorry.

omg!!!

Gratz for finding that out but that isn't hacking.


jpoke89 responds:

Yes, it is. Altering something to function as it was not supposed to is hacking. Which is usually legal. Getting into and modifying or obtaining information from a remote PC without authentication or permission is cracking. Cracking is almost 100% illegal.
