    Here is a patch I found that I have tested myself with success. It removes the watermark that appears on the desktop in the lower right hand corner. Remember to always backup.Enjoy:). [Patch is attached]
    Instructions and props go to the link provided.
    How To Remove Watermark From Windows 7 Builds [Both X86 & X64]


    1.Right-click on Removewatermark (.exe) file and select Run as administrator. Make sure that you have chosen RemovewatermarkX86.exe file, if you are using 32-bit Windows. Likewise choose RemovewatermarkX64.exe for 64-bit Windows.
    2. Next, a command prompt will be opened asking your permission to continue. Press/type “Y” to continue patching process.

    3. Within few seconds, a successful message will be shown. Close Command Prompt window & reboot your system.

    4. Enjoy!


    If the watermark appears even after rebooting the machine, then follow the procedure below.

    1. Type CMD in Start menu search field and hit enter Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open Command Prompt with admin rights. Alternatively, go to Start > All programs > Accessories. Right-click on Command Prompt entry, and select Run as administrator.

    2. In the Command Prompt, type in mcbuilder.exe and hit enter. It may take a minute to finish the process. Now, close the Command Prompt window and reboot Windows 7.

    3. You should see no watermark on your desktop now.

    Note that this patch should work fine on all builds of Windows 7 including build 7057.

    Was using something like this all through the beta, but fortunately the RTM has no such marks :)

    Some off the Se7en builds had problems updating after we ran patches to remove watermark... Is this one of them? How long have you had it patched?

    I don't know why people would want to mess with this when you can get the RTM then re-arm it for 4 months use.
