This file is 474Kb and should take approximately 4 minutes on a standard 28.8 modem connection.
Use Winzip to open the file once downloaded. If you already have winzip installed on your system just click on the file that you just downloaded and winzip should autostart.
Once Winzip is open you should have an item that is similiar to the picture located on the left. Now click on the item that says "Start_Button_Changer.exe" (This item should be located in the winzip window). At this time it will prompt another box.
Now you should have an window that looks like the image on the left of this step. Leave the default install directory alone and click on the button that says "unzip". This should unzip the executable (the program) into its new home folder. Press ok to the dialog box that appears and close the unzip box as shown in the image in this step. Keep the original winzip open.
If you have done everything exactly as stated above we will now run the program. Click on the start button on your taskbar on your normal desktop. Now click on the run button. This will prompt another box as pictured to the left. Now type in EXACTLY what appears below:
This will initiate the program. We're almost done!
You should now notice that the clock on the right hand bottom corner (if you haven't moved your taskbar) of your desktop has changed into a full time clock with date and all. Now what we need to do is extract the Futurama "skins" so that the customization is complete. With the original Winzip still open there should a remaining file called "All Start Buttons.zip" Click on this file and it should open with an assortment of Futurama .bmps. Extract this to the same directory that your TClock went into.
This will give you the ammo you need to change the start menu to Futurama-esque.
Right Click on the clock on your start menu desktop bar. This should give you the menu featured on the left. Choose TClock Properties.
Now the customization menu comes up. Click on the tab labeled "Taskbar", pictured on the left. You can do two things here. Customize the start button, and customize the start menu bar. Both include matching graphics to enjoy a scheme on the start button and bar. Just click on the two dots .. and it should land you right in the directory you extracted the .bmps files to with the last winzip action. If not you will have to use the two dots .. and search out the directory in which you put them.
That's it!! You should now be enjoying your new Futurama Start Button and Start Menu Bars, and not to mention a snazzy new customizable clock. If you are still having trouble I am unable to offer my assistance. Please do not email as I will not be able to get to the questions. My best suggestion is try the message boards and hopefully someone will try and help if you are experiencing any ready known problems.
