Resource Editor for Windows 7 (Freeware)

Looking for a free resource editor for Windows 7 that supports Windows 32-bit as well as 64-bit?
There are plenty of good shareware resource editors, but I also found a great freeware resource editor that should be fine for changing your Start button for example.

Windows 7 Resource Editor

Free Resource Editor: ResourceHacker

The resource editor I am talking about is ResourceHacker. It’s not being updated but it is definitely still one of the best resource editors and works on Windows 7 64-bit!

ResourceHacker is simple to use and can modify all of your system files (.exe, .dll, .res, .rc, etc.).

    In Windows 7, for a Windows classic theme, how do you change the Windows logo on the Start button to the old Windows logo? That would make my Windows 7 computer look even more like Win 9x ME, 2000, NT, what have you.
