    Here's the manual way to get rid of most of the watermarks:

    Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui
    Take ownership and control
    Open in Resource Hacker
    String table Resource 2070
    Delete lines 33108, 33109, 33118
    Compile
    Save
    Reboot
    Run > mcbuilder
    Reboot

    Has anyone found how to get rid of the last bit? Mine leaves ".b32615d501a711d0" but it seems to be different for every system.

    Hi all,
    In windows 8, if you remove its watermarks, you won't see "move file, folder process"
    You can check it to see that "invisible copy box for your windows" and you can't stop, x with you copying process
    thanks

    I don't have any problems with copy or move, or any other problems that came after removing the watermark. My only "problem" is how to get rid of the last little bit of the watermark.

    Hmm, all the removal tute's I've seen state that those last few bits will still appear. Very strange.

    This worked great for me: How to: Remove watermark (build 8102) - xda-developers

    Left with hash no. so installed trial of this: DeskScapes - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
    which gets rid of the rest albeit a bit clumsily...

    Hi jbecerril,
    If you can't take ownership, usually it's because you're not running an Administrator account.
    In Windows Developer Preview, right click on a file > Properties > Security tab > Advanced button: Click on the blue "Change" button. Then type "Administrators", or your user name. Then click on the Check Names button (it will change to add computer name) Click OK. Click OK again. Now click on the Edit button. Highlight "Administrators" or "Users" in the list. Tick the "Full Control" box in the bottom pane. OK.

    Resource Hacker is a free little program for editing system files.

    It would be nice to share that info.
