    What did you use to activate your Windows 7 with?

    EDIT: As sebus noted, the driver signature enforcement overrider can cause a test watermark to appear sometimes, for some reason... Dont use it unless you have no other option. As for a fix, you can try one of the tweak programs that have watermark removal tools... I have never had the problem, so I am unsure of the precise way of removing the test watermark. A quick google will probably yield the answer to the questions you have, as the driver signature enforcement overrider is not a totally uncommon tool...

    Since you are running 32-bit windows, I dont see why you would need to use the tool can just use XP or Vista drivers. I have a few pieces of hardware with no Windows 7 or Vista drivers, so I tossed the XP drivers into the mix and they all work perfect. Unless you are running x64 (which is much more picky about drivers and signing) I see no reason that you would need to use that overrider tool...

    EDIT2: If all else fails, may I suggest a piece of duct tape, or a post-it note that you could stick on the monitor? Perhaps some white-out (or blue-out)? (j/k) :p

    i already used sebus noted tool :(

    it somehow remove the test mode.
    but stops my other driver like then hsdpa modem.
    it doesnt came up with a network.

    then i use again sebus tool to enter into testmode again and then network came in my hsdpa modem.

    so you think i need to clean install again to remove the watermark?

    As Mivec said just open a cmd prompt with admin rights and type bcdedit /set testsigning shows operation successful...restart your system and then it will say startup problem and the windows will do some fix say finish and restart and you are need to use any tool...I had the similar problem and the cause is some unsigned drivers would have been installed by some application.

    Just tested and Bcdedit.exe /set TESTSIGNING ON turns it on.

    Bcdedit.exe /set TESTSIGNING OFF turns it off :D

    Problem Solved. Thread Locked pending deletion.

    Not sure if this is how he did it (looks like he just used some screencasting software on a virtual machine window), but its possible to make recording of steps like that with the Windows Problem Steps Recorder.
    Hit start and in the search field type in "psr."
    Once you start recording it should take a screenshot everytime you click a mouse button or when a program does something.
