Windows 7: How did my win7 switched to test mode?

How did my win7 switched to test mode?

I noticed today that my legally bought windows 7 set up suddenly had a "test mode" at the lower right corner. Does anyone know about it?

The only major installation I did recently was installing a device driver for a PS3 controller. Do you think it had anything to do with it? I used a program to install an unsigned driver.

Windows 7

sorry for my stupidity for not asking google first. i found the solution
why does it say "Test Mode Windows 7 Build 7600" in bottom right corner?

yes, the reason was because of the new installation of drivers.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

If it is leagal and you say it is, this should work:

Open a cmd window with administrator rights and run this command:
Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF then reboot

It should be gone.
