Lately I've noticed something weird going on with my system. I'm pretty certain it started after the latest slew of updates that MS started releasing. First and foremost, I'm running W7 Ultimate x64, activated through BIOS mod with a Dell SLIC, cert, and key. I think this occurs after every restart. I noticed that I get the "this copy of windows 7 is not genuine" watermark in the corner of the screen. I open up computer properties to check if this is true, and as soon as that window opens up, the watermark disappears. What causes this? It sounds like a bug rather than an actual deactivation/patch attempt by MS. Anyone else have this and/or a solution? Thanks in advance. Also, sorry if this has been brought up by anyone else.
