A few things to note out..

First - VB6?! Why not just vb4 or another antiquated language turboc++?

Second - what's to gain from making a shell on windows?

Quote

So basically all most everything windows has, just tell me how much it will cost i will pay really good if this gets done just like what i asked,

Third - what is to gain by making everything like windows but not be windows?

Quote

Oh and one of the biggest things is i want the windows to look different not like Microsoft windows with the x button an the - button i want it to be Yankee.

Fourth - which Yankee? Jeeter? Teixeira? Ruth?

Quote

IM a programmer my self and i just don't have the time to do this.

Fifth - okay, but do you have a time enough to make a coherent plan of what you want to do? Right now all I see is a wall of text of things from windows you want with little to no explanation on what shouldn't be there, what sort of principles should be in place for writing this, etc.

I want it to have a start menu and beable to save files and make folders just like windows dose, so say you open a text editor and you want to save it instad of saveing it to windows explorer it save it to the replacement shell.

And what I mean about this, You know how the windows looks when you open a folder and it has a resize and make the window biger and close button, I want that to look different.

desktop environment typically consists of icons, windows, toolbars, folders, wallpapers and desktop widgets graphical user interfaces and WIMP).Windows Desktop elements, like Desktop, TaskBar, Tray, Main Menu, DDE
with its own Control Panel, tasklist, etc, and most of it can be skinnable though the interface and applications, and utilities filemanager Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointing Device and system monitors, a clock, a task module and GUI might also provide drag and drop functionality and other features that make the desktop metaphor more complete. A desktop environment aims to be an intuitive way for the user to interact with the computer using concepts which are similar to those used when interacting with the physical world, such as buttons and windows software library for applications with a unified look and behavior consists of a window manager (such as Metacity or KWin), a file manager (such as Nautilus or Dolphin), a set of themes, and programs and libraries for managing the desktop. All of these individual modules can be exchanged and individually configured to achieve a unique combination, but most desktop environments provide a default configuration that requires minimal user input.The most common desktop environment on personal computers is Microsoft Windows' built-in interface. It is titled Luna in Windows XP and Aero in Windows Vista and Windows 7. Also common is Aqua, included with Apple's Mac OS X.

Mainstream desktop environments for Unix-like operating systems using the X Window System include KDE, GNOME, Xfce, and LXDE.

A number of other desktop environments also exist, including (but not limited to) CDE, EDE, GEM, IRIX Interactive Desktop, Sun's Java Desktop System, Jesktop, Mezzo, Project Looking Glass, ROX Desktop, UDE, Xito, XFast. Moreover, there exists FVWM-Crystal, which consists of a powerful configuration for the FVWM window manager, a theme and further adds, altogether forming a "construction kit" for building up a desktop environment.

X window managers that are meant to be usable stand-alone—without another desktop environment—also include elements reminiscent of those found in typical desktop environments, most prominently Enlightenment.[citation needed] Other examples include OpenBox, Fluxbox, WindowLab, Fvwm, as well as Window Maker and AfterStep, which both feature the NeXTSTEP GUI look and feel.

The Amiga approach to desktop environment was noteworthy: the original Workbench desktop environment in AmigaOS evolved through time to originate an entire family of descendants and alternative desktop solutions. Some of those descendants are the Scalos,[18] the Ambient desktop of MorphOS, and the Wanderer desktop of the AROS open source OS. WindowLab also contains features reminiscent of the Amiga UI. Third party Directory Opus software which was originally just a navigational file manager program then evolved to became to a complete Amiga desktop replacement called Directory Opus Magellan.There is the Workplace Shell that runs on IBM OS/2 or eComStation.
The BumpTop project is an experimental desktop environment. Its main objective is to replace the 2D paradigm with a "real-world" 3D implementation, where documents can be freely manipulated across a virtual table.an application that provides detailed information about your files, folders, and drives. You can use it to see how your files are organized and to copy, move, and rename files, as well as perform other taskspertaining to files, folders, and drives.The simplest way to access Windows Explorer is to right-click the Start menu or the My Computer icon and select either Open Windows Explorer or Explore. If your keyboard has a Windows logo key, you can press Win-e to launch Windows Explorer. Alternatively, you can access it from the Start menu. In newer operating systems, it is under Accessories.This is the user shell, which we see as the familiar taskbar, desktop, and other user interface features. This process isn't as vital to the running of Windows as you might expect, and can be stopped (and restarted) from Task Manager, usually with no negative side effects on other applications.
Note: The explorer.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows. In other cases, explorer.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager.Stuff like what windows explorer dose, i hope that helps
