Hi, I Found a way to remove the Watermark completely

NOTE ONLY TESTED ON ENGLISH VERSION !!!

Download the Rar file

http://www63.zippyshare.com/v/76330339/file.html

Pass: kwadie

1. Install the <InstallTakeOwnership.reg> from the Take Ownership
2. Take Ownership from the <shell32.dll.mui> file (located @ C:\Windows\System32\en-US)
3. Take Ownership from the <basebrd.dll.mui> file (located @ C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US)
4. Close the Windows Explorer completely in order to let the <InstallTakeOwnership> work
5. Copy and replace the <shell32.dll.mui> from the Edited Files to C:\Windows\System32\en-US
6. Copy and replace the <basebrd.dll.mui> from the Edited Files to C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US
7. Start the Command prompt with Administrator(right click)
8. Type mcbuilder and wait till its finished
9. Reboot !!
10. Enjoy !!!!

Worked perfect for me on Consumer Preview, THANKS! Been looking for this since Wed. Also, if you hate that they took the start menu away, google vistart to get a nice start menu replacement that works fine in Consumer Preview.

By closing the Windows Explorer I mean just closing it with the red cross at the top.
NOT the explorer.exe process. The windows Explorer != Explorer.exe
