Windows 7: Activation, re-arm and watermark

13 Sep 2009   #1

Activation, re-arm and watermark

Hi everyone!

I installed a clean RTM 7600 (or at least that is what I hope I did). I did not activate during install, and after 30 days I got the reminder that I should activate... However, at the same time, I also got a watermark on the desktop saying "This copy is not original...".

I then re-armed and rebooted: I got a pop-up message again saying that the copy may not be original; I clicked OK, and now the watermark on the desktop is gone.

Is this normal?

Is this an offical image from Microsoft? Or did you download it from some third-party? If the later case, then sure this could be normal behavior.

If the clock is not correct you may get the not original watermark

*Add* watermark?
I've purchased the retail version of Windows 7 Professional. I previously had Windows 7 Ultimate RC, which had the "Evaluation Copy" watermark in the bottom right corner. Is there any way to add a watermark of that sort in the full version without modifying the desktop background?
My Watermark has gone!
I have a technet subscription download. I don't think that is the issue, however. The last two days I have noticed the watermark has vanished! I have not applied any patches or messed with the time. etc. As far as I can see, there are no updates that would account for it. Anyone else?
