    Start Menu Reviver 1.0.0.1836


    For those looking for a Start replacement here is a new Start menu program called "Start Menu Reviver." It is Freeware ( at for now). Haven't given a full test has of yet, albeit it sames to be well thought out, and for those who might be in the market for a new Start Menu in Win 7 it works very well in 7. Enjoy. . . Source

    That has been around quite a while. Always good to remind of the alternatives.

    Sandra Bullock looking great there.

    I think it's great that there's an alternative, but why would you update to W8 if you don't like the new start screen?

    Where did I give anyone the impression that I was not happy with Win 8. . .All I am doing is letting folks know that there is an alternative to the Start Screen. . .nothing more, nothing less. . .

    Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements This is another one that has bin around for some time, and is also free. It'll give you the XP start and the 7 start options.
