ya I know about that web site but you can only replace the five letters. I can replace as much as your taskbar can handle.

ok now that you have downloaded the program, we will start. first what you have to do is
backup explorer.exe (so if you messup and you dont like the way it looks, you can
replace it.), to do this you need to go to your hard drive>Windows>explorer.exe. now
that you have found the file, make a easy to find folder backup folder (named Backup).
Now copy and paste the explorer in the backup folder, then open-up the program;
now open up the backed-up explorer. Now rename explorer like explorerhacked.exe,
then open the backed-up explorer and then go the string table>37 you will see a
start text, change it to what ever you want. Now to change the bitmap>143>1033, right click 1033 and click replace
resource then click open file to change the bitmap, then save it. Now to make this work go to run>type regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon,
then change shell to explorerhacked.exe (or what ever you renamed it) then reset.
