    I removed the watermark using "MY WCP Watermark editor" (I cannot post links yet)

    Just delete "Edition", "Build" and the first "Restriction Note" and click apply new settings.

    For some reason you can only apply one time, if you try to open the .exe again it will show "Are you sure you are on Windows 8 Beta?", so make sure to do it right the first time

    Why someone would need to remove the Watermark? Sounds stupid and there isn't real reason for that other to just to Show Off: "Hey, I've the Final and you not behbehbeh!" or some like that!

    On the other hand, it's just an good reminder to get remembered that the user is just on limited (in what way ever) edition of Windows and that at some day the use will be over!

    I don't like anything on top of my wallpaper, that's all, and I don't need the reminder.

    There to many people who just forgetting WHAT they're using! And also many of those who like to pose something (show off) what didn't exist in reality (yet)!

    Drop the attitude

    You're acting like it personally affects you that someone doesn't like watermarks :rolleyes:

    Can you ever make a post where you're not talking to someone as if they're stupid?

    As any other member, I reserves the right to express my personal meaning.

    On the other hand, to tell something sounds stupid didn't means that someone (or an special person) is stupid!

    If you think that's a "shoe" of yours, it's just up to you to use or not!

    Working fine here with normal 64bits edition. I just deleted the text for Edition, Build and the first Restriction instead of clicking remove all, apply, and all watermark is gone, even after reboot. What is happening for you? (I downloaded from softpedia, first google result)

    and here is a stupid script to make the stupid change.

    Code:
    takeown /F "C:\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui" 
    icacls C:\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui /grant administrators:F 
    ren C:\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui shell32.dll.mui.bak 
    Copy-Item .\shell32.dll.mui C:\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui
    
    
    
    takeown /F "C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui" 
    icacls C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui /grant administrators:F 
    ren C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui basebrd.dll.mui.bak 
    Copy-Item .\basebrd.dll.mui C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui
    
    or for your OEM mounted wim

    Code:
    $MOUNT = 'C:\Mount'
    
    takeown /F "$MOUNT\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui" 
    icacls $MOUNT\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui /grant administrators:F 
    ren $MOUNT\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui shell32.dll.mui.bak 
    Copy-Item .\shell32.dll.mui $MOUNT\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui
    
    
    
    takeown /F "$MOUNT\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui" 
    icacls $MOUNT\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui /grant administrators:F

    I did what znx said, and on Enterprise at least, I still have "Evaluation copy. Build 9841" (just that).

    Figuring I did something wrong, I then used the files he posted above, rebooted again, but no change from the above.

    Update: To fix this, I reverted to the original files, rebooted, and then ran the batch again and rebooted. That time, it worked.

    Thanks a lot for this stupid script, I got some stupid errors, but in my stupidity I ignored them and this stupid thing worked after I rebooted.
    Thanks!
    Edit; Those stupid errors apperently broke it...
