Public version 3.1a
-Added ability to enable/disable the start tips with regfiles.
-When using Visa, it would still try and apply userframes and start tips. (I missed this one in 3.1)
These are the only two changes in 3.1a. If 3.1 worked for you, then you should NOT install this. Well you can if you want but there is no new features.
I also included StartOrbz 2.1, since this loaded up fine for most people.
There really isnt much more to do with StartOrbz, so only expect bug fixes. If you have suggestions, please let me know. As always, post any bugs, comments, or suggestions.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
Note that I changed all explorer.exe to default both in the Windows folder and the SysWOW64 folder. There are no issue whatsoever restarting explorer only issue remains that previous orb is back when rebooting.
A couple of problems I feel you need to know about this version of StartOrbz is that much of the time when saving a newly made orb, the program saves it inside the same folder with other orbs I had made using the same xml file, so when I go to select a specific orb to either edit it, or apply it, even though the image showing is the orb I want, after pressing my mouse key to select it, a totally different orb shows up, so I click cancel, but can never get the orb I wish to work with to show.
Due to the above problem, is why I think the program could not restart Explorer. One problem after another arrived for me that day when StartOrbz did this to me, which ended up in taking me 3 days before I was able to repair my Windows 7 64-bit OS, and a mighty dollar or $200 to repair the PC enough to sign onto it.
Please do some updates to this program soon, Blizo, as it is so very delightful, enjoyable, and I do love having the ability to make my own orbs in the fashion that I wish.
Thank you, and take care.
I have a question though, could you make a windows 8.1 version, as for some reason if I use a windows 7 start orb file and load it into Windows 8.1 start orb changer it reads the file differently so I get a triple logo for each part of the start button. Basic,hover,pressed. But yeh I love your Windows 7 Version it is the best out there for making start buttons easy.
Thanks for the suggestion though, I will try to implement an auto conversion feature.
