What on earth would cause you to want to do that? You can't get there from here and BTW posting your email addy for all to see is inviting spam or something worse.

It is possible... but I don't know if you would like the result. The start button is part of explorer.exe. So you would need a program that terminates explorer.exe, automatically edits the file to insert the current date text at the appropriate place in the file, and then restart explorer.exe. It would maybe not be too annoying if scheduled to occur at some time of day when you don't use the computer.

Here's a tutorial on editing explorer.exe to get you started: http://www.theeldergeek.com/change_text_on_xp_start_button.htm
