    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7


    The only way I've been able to hide it is with that program. But I installed the latest version of 8.1 on Parallels, and it's there in that as well. It's been there in every version of 7 and 8 I've installed, and maybe on Vista as well. But I always set the program to SHOW it. Maybe it is not there until I do that, but it has been there regardless.

    the funny thing for me is that when I installed Windows MAnager, on that window that was posted, the watermark option is already unchecked so I wanted to try my luck and check and uncheck it, then reset the wallpaper after a reboot..etc but no luck, I guess I will need to learn to live with it, anyways it isnt a big deal, just a small writing, could be better if i could get rid of it, but if i cant, it's ok, I'm not going to make a big deal out of it, I was just curious if there was a way but apparently the suggested ways dont work on my computer. but I appreciate your help realy, thank you very much all

    Maybe these guys are right, and my versions of all of these OSes were somehow different, and maybe yours is too. My Windows 8 says 9200, is that what yours says? If it is a lesser number then you have some kind of Beta maybe.

    Try checking it, then hit Apply, your Desktop will reboot. Then open it again and hit "Hide" - Apply again and the desktop will reboot again. See if that does the trick. Sometimes you have to fiddle with it.

    My Bad, looks like you did try that. Maybe try hitting it, and when it prompts you to reset the desktop hit NO, then reboot and see if it works that way. I've had to do that on a few systems.
