StartOrbz v3.1.a by Blizo StartOrbz v3.1.a by Blizo
December 14,2010
Public version 3.1a
-Added ability to enable/disable the start tips with regfiles.
-When using Visa, it would still try and apply userframes and start tips. (I missed this one in 3.1)

These are the only two changes in 3.1a. If 3.1 worked for you, then you should NOT install this. Well you can if you want but there is no new features.
I also included StartOrbz 2.1, since this loaded up fine for most people.

There really isnt much more to do with StartOrbz, so only expect bug fixes. If you have suggestions, please let me know. As always, post any bugs, comments, or suggestions.

Blizo-

I installed and ran this without a problem but when it came to applying my orb it turned my system into a weird windows 95 theme and no matter what I do it won't change back to vista D: - I've tried the basic things like going to personalized>themes and etc. and I've also tried system restore and nothing has changed :[ PLEASE HELP!!

I had to restore my laptop to factory setting and I lost everything on it. But it's not in classic anymore.

Thanks OP, that's fantastic. -_-

Where does StartOrbz save it's settings and can you make it portable. What I'm trying to do is put StartOrbz on a flash drive but when I do It doesn't search it's own folder for orbs

I have a slight problem. Whenever I try to import a already .png start orb, It gives me a pop-up saying that I could only import genuine ones, however I can import any bmp. If you can fix this error I would be most grateful since there is a specific .png orb that I wish to use. My stats:Windows 7 SP1 X64. Thank you for making such an awesome program.

I spent hours near days looking for a way to import/create Start Orbs for Windows 7. Your application was/IS the best out there. Outstanding job!!

I guess my easier question is, if i patch my files now, will it work?
Then, can i revert my changes?
Or will restarting fix it?

I forgot to patch my theme files in vista. Oops. I dont have system restore enabled either. After applying changes, i switched to classic so i could see my icon in action. But now, aero or basic vista are not availible in appearance settings. I have not yet turned off my computer. What do i do to get back to aero? - because 2.1 nor 3.1a will open - it crashes on opening the exe.
