    Well I guess so, but I just wanted to know how the watermark works or whatever, so that I could probably fix it manually....

    Microsoft aren't going to say any time soon. Understandably, they don't want to give away any clues as to how to get round their watermark.

    Some time back there was a Registry entry that would put the watermark on the screen but that ability disappeared from the RTM versions and now only exists on my IP/Insider Preview computers.

    And of course, we would be risking a slapped wrist from moderators here if we gave out advice how to bypass it as technically running unactivated breaches EULA.

    Not bypass, but an explanation on how the overlay works

    That is tantamount to giving clues thatmods might object to.

    ok whatever but the reason I wanted an explanation is because I know many people have this problem but dont even realize it, so I wanted it to be noticed but Im done looking for a workaround Ill just activate my windows :C

    Yup, I got a bit upset in the other thread as it borders activation bypass

    There are exploits that hook the Branding Resource Dll - but that is as far as we can discuss that

    Why that dll has knock on effects I dunno, but not interested in what happens on unactivated systems, TBH, apart from getting them activated, obviously!

    MS probably regard this unintended side effect as adding pressure to activate, so re-classified a 'bug' as a 'feature',

    And don't forget that the Desktop is not Static like a picture on the wall but Dynamic so the watermark will either always be there [like mine are] or will always be refreshing/redrawing. Many things such as open programs will cause that redrawing.

    Good point

    The mouse lags I have had has almost always been due to memory leak - if MS has purposely done that on unactivated systems .. well GENIUS (...and coming from me, who does not compliment them often .. LOL)
