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

2 cheats, 1 tutorial!

i did it!

but while i was doing it, i found another hack

instead of opening up 37, open up 35 an there should be click here to begin

change it and the do what you did with explorer start menu

restart explorer.exe and whatever you tiped in should appearinstead of click here to begin

p.s click here to begin appears if you keep your mouse over ur start enu for about 5 seconds

jpoke89 responds:

Good! I know most of these, however i chose to do Start because I figured it would appeal more to "Regular" users than anything else, since you see "start" when you have most anything open, aside from full screen things.
Thanks for the review!
