Just wondering if anybody knows what the issue is with my Start Orb in Windows 7, can't click on it with the mouse but works fine with the Windows key on the keyboard.

Good morning, Ged.
Have you tried this? Iconcache.db repair.

If that doesn't fix it then try this.... Windows 7 Start Button Changer 2.6
Sometimes all you have to do to fix it is change the Start Orb with this Standalone App then change it back.
Also you could try applying another Theme.

Thanks Hermitt

That "Have you tried this? Iconcache.db repair" seems to have fixed it,

Cheers

Funny thing is I actually used that before to repair an issue with my icons, not realizing it would fix the Start Orb also, well you learn something new every day
