    You can try the ones in the attached. There are 3 named 6801.6805 and 6809 in a folder called explorer.exe. The are .PNG files in the folder that has to be placed in your theme files such as:
    C:\windows\Resources\themes\theme name

    The other is a .BMP file which will have to be installed with a program such as :

    Download Windows 7 Start Orb Changer (211 KB)

    Reguested Orb.rar

    Everything is in the .Rar file but the program that is in the link. I hope this works out for you. @Maiemi:

        You just can't have one image it take 3 and the size has to be 54 x162 Pixels no matter if you use the .Png one or the .Bmp file. I hope they worked for you.

            Attached is a .PSD Template for start orbs.


            This is for Windows 7. The one orb that made for you with the .BMP should have worked with that program. I hope this helps you

            Unbenannt-12.bmp This orb should have worked using that program
