    Make sure you don't corrupt your explorer.exe file though. ;)

    Hi ! naveen
    u know this is very simple if u know a bit of win32 programming.
    do as follows.
    create a formless application in vb/vc++
    then search for the start button's handle.(not difficult)
    get the drawing context thru the handle.
    try pasting any picture on this context using bitblt api call...and hope u'll land up with that picture on the start button.

    if this does not works then try this:

    create a dummy button having ur name on it(or any picture) the dummy button should have the same dimensions as that of the start button and should be placed over it so that it hides the start button.
    now every timr u click the start button,ur program should send appropriate messages (menu open,...blah blah) to the system so that it functions just like the start button.

    then run ur invisible program at startup.
    bye.

    Or you can probably just send BM_SETIMAGE to the button.
