    Someone with Photoshop could help.

    Google will list lots of start orbs:

    Just install Classic Shell & right click on the start button & select Settings & as in my picture, change your start button.

    You need to use the google link to find & download some orbs.
    You'll need 7-Zip to extract the .bmp's from the .rar file.
    Use google to find 7-zip & Classic shell.
