changing the start button text

Recommended Posts


i found the source code on the forums once, about a month ago, but i lost it, was wanting to change the text up for my personal amusement and accidentally deleted the .au3 a few weeks ago before i even considered changing the message it displays. i have the .exe file, but not the .au3 file and i refuse to upload a .exe as some people might think it's a virus and i dont wish to scare people. if anybody knows the link to the thread containing the code, i would appreciate it. or if you have the code, that would be helpful too.

Many Thanks,
