    NOTE: This version is trial and will work for 30 days. After 30 days, start menu will go blank and every boot there will be nag about trial over.
    Pricing will be revealed soon, but don't worry, it won't be pricier than alternatives.

    Going to try it. Thanks.

    Edit: Nvm, don't like the look of the old start menu. Doesn't fit with the new Metro theme for desktop.

    I use Stardock start8, works well and does everything the windows7 start menu did so I'm happy and once you login your logged into the desktop not the metro interface^^

    The only way is to kill the metro thread in Explorer.exe, otherwise it is still running, consumes processor power and disk throughput. Unpack this archive and run the vbs script. You can run it at startup.
