Removing the send feedback link and wallpaper watermark from the windows 7 beta. By Ibdc Getting annoyed by accidentally clicking the send feedback link when you mean to minimize a window or you just think it looks ugly? Hate having that text in the bottom right corner of your desktop background? Then this tut is for you. First things first download this: Code: http://rapidshare.com/files/182223365/Send_Feedback_and_Watemark_Removal.rar Extract it and open the folder. Removing the Send Feedback Link Method 1: The Automatic Way 1. I made a little program that does this for you, it's in that RAR archive so just run it. 2. If all went as planned all you have to do is restart and the send feedback link will be gone. If it didn't work your permissions are set wrong, so you must do it manually. (Method 2) Also you don't have to restart immediately, you can remove the watermark first too so you only have to do one restart. Keep in mind you must have the .NET Framework 3.5 installed in order to run this. (also I'm pretty sure it won't work for any countries other than the US) Method 2 1. Start>Search Bar>Regedit.exe 2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop 3. Double Click FeedbackToolEnabled and change its value to 0 If FeedbackToolEnabled doesn't exist create it and set it to 0 4. Restart. Removing the Desktop Watermark Method 1 1. You're gonna need to run command prompt as administrator so Start>Run>CMD and press shift+ctrl+enter or right click it and hit run as administrator. 2. Enter this into the command prompt window: takeown /f C:\Windows\System32\en-US\user32.dll.mui 3. Type icacls C:\Windows\System32\en-US\user32.dll.mui /grant (insert your username here):F (obviously replace insert your username here with the username of your account, and don't put the parentheses) 4. Open an explorer window and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\en-US and rename user32.dll.mui to user32.dll.mui.old (this keeps it as a backup in case something goes wrong) Click OK if the UAC decides to annoy you. 5. Also in that RAR archive was the modified user32.dll.mui file. Drag and drop it right into C:\Windows\System32\en-US and click ok if the UAC says anything. 6. Restart 7. Enjoy not having the watermark and send feedback. Method 2 (suggested by nickcas) http://rapidshare.com/files/179899304/Remove7Watermark.exe Haven't tested it personally, but I'll take his word for it. I might know of a third method. I'll be sure to test it out later and edit this post if it works. Ok that about sums it up. Enjoy.
