How to Rename Windows XP Start Menu Button

STEP 1: BYPASSING WINDOWS FILE PROTECTION

Launch “My Computer”, click on Tools -> Folder options -> View.

Select show all hidden files and folders option and uncheck the option hide protected operating system files. Also uncheck the option hide extention for known file types.




Go to C:\windows\system32\restore, select the file filelist.xml, right click it, go to properties and uncheck the option read-only.
Open it (filelist.xml) with notepad.
Add the line <rec>%systemroot%\explorer.exe</rec> as shown below and save the file:
<exclude>
<rec>%systemroot%\explorer.exe</rec>
<rec> %windir%\system.ini</rec>
<rec> %windir%\tasks\desktop.ini</rec>
<rec> %windir%\win.ini</rec>
<rec> *:\AUTOEXEC.BAT </rec>
<rec>*:\CONFIG.MSI</rec>
<rec> *:\CONFIG.SYS </rec>
Go to C:\windows\system32\dllcache, you will find a backup copy of explorer.exe. Rename it to explorer.bak.
STEP 2: CHANGING THE NAME OF START BUTTON

On right side, rename “start” to anything you want. For ex. “Hello!” and press “compile script”.
Repeat the same procedure for string 38, 1033.

Save changes in file menu (if error occurs close explorer.exe and repeat sub-step 3 and 4).
