There is an interactive version of this (by me) here (remove all spaces in the URL!): http://www.newgrounds.com /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!)

but inexperianced computer ppl doing this may screw over there computer i mean telling a normal person to do this can be like tellling them to delete system 32. Its a nice tutorial but u could fuck part of your comp so if u do this like the authors comments be very careful dnt try this sf u dnt know much of computers

kool

wow i saw this on YT but that way was way harder. your way on the other hand was WAY batter. THANKS ! =)


jpoke89 responds:

I'm glade you liked it. Check out the interactive one, it's step-by-step, so it's even easier! Thanks for your review!


Horrible!

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...


lol

im put shit on my friends computer


jpoke89 responds:

That's not what this is meant for... :\


Cool!

Awesome tutorial!I'm gonna fave it so I can try to do it later!=D
