    Default How to restore or recover original windows start orb

    Hi,



    I have recently downloaded the windows theme installer and installed a new theme in my computer. After changing to the new theme and wanted to return my window theme to the original windows 7 theme, I was unable to do so.

    Even when I used the restore to original system file button in the window installer theme.

    I would like to kindly ask if there is a way to get back my original windows 7 start button orb?

    Thanks in advance.

    The best and easiest way to do it, in such a case, would be to do a system restore. If that is not an option, then run sfc /scannow or System File Checker.

    To run the System File Checker in Windows 7 or Vista, type cmd in start search box. In the result, which appear, right click on cmd and select Run As Administrator.

    In the command prompt window which opens, type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.

    The sfc utility will run for a while and if any corruptions are found, replace them on re-boot.

    More on that here: Run System File Checker (sfc /scannow) & Interpret its logs in Windows 7 & Vista | The Windows Club

    Run Command Prompt as Administrator and execute the SFC command for a single file (explorer.exe - contains start orb images)

    Code:
    SFC /SCANFILE= "C:\Windows\explorer.exe"

    I installed a theme that came with my keyboard. Changing theme changes everything except for the Start button. I don't have a restore point, it is turned off.
