Remove/disable “For testing purposes only. Build 7000″ watermark and “Send Feedback” link from your Windows 7 beta 1 desktop
So previously we showed how to unlock the superbar, remove the activation countdown and remove the watermark from Windows 7 build 6801.
Since then, Windows 7 Beta 1 (build 7000) has been released into the wild. This time around, removing the watermark (“For testing purposes only. Build 7000″) is proving more tricky than before. We spent a good proportion of the day trying to work out how the winsxs folder is affecting user32.dll.mui. We’ll post a fix within the next few days.
However, the “Send Feedback” link seen on all windows can be removed relatively easily.
Step One – Create the .reg file
– Start Menu -> Accessories -> Notepad
– Copy and paste the italic text below into Notepad.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
– Save the file anywhere, naming it “fbr.reg” (include the quotations when you save it as otherwise it will be saved fbr.reg.txt).
Step Two – Execute the file
– Find your created file and click it. Agree with the messages until it confirms that the value has been entered into the registry.
– Restart your computer.
