    I _still_ run a beta version of WinXP and I would like to know how to get rid of the Windows XP ... on the bottom right hand corner of the desktop.

    Last time I checked - All beta's (I was using one for several months) expire after 180 you may want to look into that if you haven't already. As far as the text in the corner....don't ask me, it's prob in the registry

    Open your registry and find the key below.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'PaintDesktopVersion' set the value to equal '1' to display the version.

    Exit the registry, you may need to restart for the change to take effect.

    Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    Value Name: PaintDesktopVersion
    Data Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: (0 = disable, 1 = enable)

    Back Up your registry before making any changes
