Start 8 Start button: the proper button image restored

Start8 is an add-on to Windows 8 that restores the start menu to the bottom-left of the Desktop, Windows 7 style. It's $5, but worth the price to get a functioning desktop OS back.

For some weird reason, Stardock, the company behind Start8, put out an update that took away the Windows 8 icon and replaced it with a selection of funny-looking alternatives. Probably a copyright thing. You can set your own image though, so I made one that looks like the Windows ogo.
