If you have used any hacks to remove the watermark and send feedback, that will effect your compatibility mode and you will need to do a system restore back to the date you applied the patch and if you can't do system restore then you will need to do a Repair Install.

In addition, you could try the SFC scan. Info here if needed. SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Warning:This will remove some hacks (watermark removal for one).
