    Thanks, but how do I see the long line build code? It only says Version 6.1 Build 7600.

    Open regedit and navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

    try to run windows in safe mode or

    1) Click the Start button, click Run, type regedit and click OK

    2) On the left-hand side, navigate to (and highlight)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    3) On the right-hand side, locate PaintDesktopVersion and double-click it

    4) In the pop-up window, change the data to 1 and click OK

    Note:
    0 = Hide Windows version from desktop
    1 = Show Windows version on desktop

    5) Close the Windows Registry Editor as well as your other programs and reboot (or log off and log back in).

    Thanks Gryzor that did the trick, I was looking for the BuildLab.

    And Michel they don't do free versions of Everest anymore, highly doubt the old version works on Seven.
