    No it definitely does not change the expiration date.

    Many people have already tried this and no complaints as yet. This is supposed to be the best one to date and works fine for me.
    Confirmed working. Winver shows the same 1/15/2013 expiration date and no adverse affects noticed yet.

    Seems like a good one.

    Doesn't work for me. Cannot work for me: Windows 8 x64 CP (German)

    See read me file:
    5. Copy and replace the <shell32.dll.mui> from the Edited Files to C:\Windows\System32\en-US
    In German it should be C:\Windows\System32\de-DE - but different files.

    But this works perfect:
    • Can remove watermark
    • Can change watermark
    • Can rebuild watermark


    My_WCP_Watermark_Editor.exe

    Screen shot see here.

    I also tried My WCP Watermark Editor. Works! Doesn't even require a reboot.

    Only thing I'd wish for is some kind of "silent" (unattended) mode. You know, like "My_WCP_Watermark_Editor.exe /s" or something similar.

    The My WCP Watermark Editor may only remove the watermark from the current wallpaper, am I right? Once you change the wallpaper it's back. I could be wrong of course.

    From what I have read (I didn't have problems) with the link I gave, it is the opposite case. You follow the instructions, change the them, and then change back to your original theme and its gone.

    Works fine for me after reboot which is automatic after running the zip file.

    I added the zip file to my original post to make it easier to install. No need to mess with theme's in my version, it works with a single click IMO.

    The German cp seems to have it's problem due to different language used for files and I'm pretty sure were still speaking English in this forum.

    No, the removing is permanently. Even after change of wallpaper the watermark doesn't appear.
