Windows 7: Test Mode question

Test Mode question

I hope this is the right forum.

I've searched quite a bit, but I'm still unclear on running Test Mode.

Does anyone run in Test Mode all of the time?

Are there specific disadvantages to running in Test Mode all of the time?

Thanks for any info.

Is windows activated?


If it is you can try this:

Open a cmd window with administrator rights and run this command:

Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF

Reboot the PC and the test mode should go away.

The test mode watermark can appear if the test signing mode is started on the computer. This test mode may occur if an application whose drivers are not digitally signed by Microsoft is installed and still in the test phase. Microsoft added test mode to Windows so that users can test programs without having to provide an authentication certificate. The message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section is displayed in the lower-right corner of the desktop when the computer is running in test mode.

Test mode is meant for software developers. MS enforces a very strict digital verification for drivers and system files in vista and 7, its not advisable to turn this off because it compromises the stability and security of the OS. The problem is digital certificates cost money and in any case developers cant keep submitting every single beta they build to MS. Hence the test mode.

Although F8 is a very painful way of going about it and there are tools available which add the unverified signature to the required system files.
