Windows 7: Windows 7 Pro 64bit says 'Build 7601 C:\Windows' in bottom right

Windows 7 64bit
Windows 7 Pro 64bit says 'Build 7601 C:\Windows' in bottom right

I recently downloaded Windows 7 Pro 64bit from DreamSpark, and installed it onto my computer. I then activated my license for it, which I also got from DreamSpark Premium. For some reason, there's a watermark on the bottom right corner that says:
" Windows 7
Build 7691
C:\Windows "

It doesn't say that my license isn't genuine. Does anyone know why this is showing, and how I could get rid of it?

Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

Does it also say 'Test Mode'?

This is the Windows Watermark - and will appear sometimes if certain software is installed.
