How to change the text in START Button in task bar ? I have received many emails from users on this topic. In Windows XP Pro, you can change your Start button and you are not even restricted with 5 characters as it used to be the case in previous version of Windows but the process itself of modifiying the start button is a bit more tedious than what it used to be. Anyways, gist of act is to modify your 1. First of all, make a backup of your explorer.exe This is one of the most important executables of your operating system and incase you make a mistake, you should have its backup to fall back on to ! You will see this file in C:\Windows directory. Go there, make a copy and change its name to something you remember like "explorerold.exe or explorer.old". 2. Download a freeware called ResourceHacker by going to http://www.rpi.net.au/~ajohnson/resourcehacker 3. Now, lauch resource hacker and locate your explorer.exe by going to c:\windows. Now go to String Table>37>1033. This is where the START text is located. Change it whatever you would like.... 4. Once done with the changing START button text, click on the button called "Compile Script". Now its time to save the changes. Important: Save the file as explorer_modified.exe (or something similar). You can not save it as explorer.exe as file is in use as you are exploring the directories etc etc. 5. All right, reboot the computer and boot into safe mode in command prompt environment (at boot time press 'F8' a few times...) and log in as administrator. 6. Now all that you need to do is to copy the modified explorer file to original one. Type this at command prompt "copy c:\windows\explorer_modified.exe to c:\windows\explorer.exe" (without quotes) 7. Reboot your computer as you would normally do.
If you have followed the steps correctly, you should have new explorer by now.
when system starts up, antivirus software like Norton do the startup scan for virus detection and this process utilizes more memory and high processing of CPU .It makes the mouse & keyboard stucking at that moments. we have the same problem in our server also.
