    Hello. I have an annoying watermark placed on the desktop on the very far bottom right corner. I'm all for looks and even though most of the time I don't see it, because I'm browsing the web or whatever, I'd still like to get rid of it since I am using a full genuine version of Windows Vista.

    So I installed SP2. It works great, can't tell much difference, and it's not a installation problem. It's simply a watermark, that even people who downloaded the beta versions of SP1 had. Now I've tried the tutorials or whatever you'd like to call them on a couple of sites, they do get rid of the watermark, but when you restart as it tells you to do for it to take affect, you can't exit nor minimize out of windows. So I'm glad I made a backup copy of the original user32.dll.mui, as all I had to do was replace the user32.dll.mui.old (which is what your told to rename it as), and I restarted and everything works fine, just simply that ugly watermark is still there..

    If there's a way to remove the watermark without affecting the ability to maximize, minimize, and close a window, please help.

    I'd be very thankful for your help.


    Edit: Here's a photo of my desktop with the watermark.. Ignore the additional stuff as it's Windows Vista, but with Objectdock.

    SP2 is BETA and this is always there on beta copies. When the final release is made then it will NOT be there.

    If you are going to run Beta software, then you need to learn to live with what the provider gives you.
