Q: 7201 - watermark doesn't give build date time in strin

Hi all
build 7201 just shows Evaluation Copy Build 7201

No extra string like winmain ---- etc as per previous builds.

Is this OK -- the build Virus scanned OK so no nasties in it -- seems genuine from the Hash totals too.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First, make sure your clock is set to the correct time zone.

Right click the clock.
Select adjust date and time.
Next select change time zone.

If your time zone is correct you may have a bad CMOS battery but you can get around it by having the system sync more often with the internet time.

Starting with build 7201, the Asus Xonar DX drivers render the OS effectively useless. Basically after installing, you'll find your system unresponsive no matter what you do or how many times you reboot. Everything appears to start up fine until you try to launch any application.

If you're stuck in this situation after installing the Xonar drivers on 7201, my suggestion is to boot into the recovery console and use system restore to return to a point prior to installing the drivers. I tried several versions before I gave up and am going back to 7137.

A:Asus Xonar DX Users: Avoid build 7201

Had the same problem, and I discovered a solution that lets you use 7201 and the Xonar drivers in relative harmony. First, open up your taskmanager and end the following processes:


And voila, everything instantly works fine. Of course, you'll also want to prevent those processes from running on boot. This isn't a perfect fix, as it'll prevent 'GX2.0' from working (i.e., you'll lose EAX emulation in games).

i have been using windows 7 x64 on a test pc for the last few months and its been working excellent. have not had any problems with it. I recently used paragon partition to free up some space and merge some partitions.

below explains what i had on on each partition:-


C:\ > partition (200GB)
E:\ > main windows 7 partition(160GB)

hidden partitions on same HDD...

F:\ > Recovery
X:\ > System Volume

In paragon i noticed partitions that did not show up on my computer. One was labelled recovery which i assumed was preinstalled vista thought the drive had 100% free space. ANd one was called system volume which i thought was from an old partition.

I FORMATTED both the recovery and system volume partitions and merged them. Once i restarted the computer windows 7 doesnt load all i get is a black screen. I don't even see the windows 7 starting logo.

Any help please. thanks

I have done a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro Build 9600 using a genuine MSDN ISO.

After the installation was complete i did all the updates and after that i decided to activate.

The activation was a success and the watermark disappeared but after a restart it came back on my desktop.

If in CMD i type "slmgr/xpr" it says widows is permanent activated so how come the watermark is still there?

Anybody has some leads to this?

Hello everyone, I am running Windows 8 on my Macbook Pro Retina 15 inch laptop via Bootcamp, I bought Windows 8 normal version from their website, and downloaded it to my computer, then installed it, activated it after installation, customized and set my computer as i feel comfortable, and suddenly, after a period of a week of usage, a watermark has appeared on the right bottom corner wriitten ''Windows 8'' and nothing more. I searched on internet and the solution was about activating, but my windows is activated as you can see on the picture, then there were some tools which were doing such things with a software but mine is a legit version so i didnt want to use such tool, by any chance do you know what may be causing this? thank you very much in advance,


A:Windows 8 Watermark (Without the build number)

If you install Yamicsoft's Windows 8 Manager you can shut that off. You can install it as a Trial, set the option to disable the watermark, then uninstall it. It's in the "Customize" menu under "Desktop".

I'm sure there is another way to disable that, but I use that software, and there are other things in there that help my system run better.

Thanks Lc

A:Windows XP time/date clock looses time after shut down.

Welcome to TSG...A bad CMOS battery will cause your machine to lose time. If the system is four years old, you're eligible for that issue...also, if the system has spent any lengthy amount of time (weeks or more) unplugged from AC power, it's more likely to happen.

Next reboot (after leaving it overnight), enter BIOS (setup) and see if the time there is slipping as well.

The battery itself (if that's what's bad) is cheap to replace...less than five bucks.

Please give us some specs on the hardware-make, model, etc.-and we can help you with battery replacement instructions.

I've been screwing around trying to get 2000 to boot, time to admit defeat, gonna put the hd into another computer and transfer all the important files.

The HD is partitioned C and D, can I format C while it's in the other computer and if so how?

Or is it easier to put it back where it came from and do it from the recovery console? What command would I use from the recovery console or is it easier to put in a win98 boot disk and format that way?

I would only like to format C and keep D as is.
Plan is to do a clean install of Win2000 pro, I put it ontop of 98se, maybe that's what's giving me grief?

Thanks in advance, I have no doubt you'll hear more from me on this!

I followed the correct procedures for creating the disc from a win 7 retail upgrade 64 bit disc for home premium set pc to boot from disc but, I don't get the press any key to boot from disc option. Instead, it just boots up normally.

Thanks for all help!

I don't know where I got this from:

You can setup a QUASI GUI method as follows.

Create a batch file with the following content:

dir /a /-p /o:gen >"%homepath%\desktop\filelisting.txt"
notepad "%homepath%\desktop\filelisting.txt"
del "%homepath%\desktop\filelisting.txt"

Open Windows Explorer, click Tools, then click Folder Options.
Click the File Types tab, and then click on (None) Folder.
Click the Advanced button and then click New to open the New Action window.

In the Action box, type Create File List.
Browse to the location where the .bat file you created is located, select it and it will be the Application Used to Perform Action.
Click OK as needed to finish.

Now open Windows Explorer. Right click on a folder you want the contents of and select Create File List.

Poof, the list appears in Notepad. You can edit it or print it or whatever, but if you want to keep it you need to save it under a different name as the batch file deletes it when you close Notepad.

Since it opens the output in Notepad you can change font sizes, save it and open with another editor or word processor and do whatever you want with it.

I connected my HP Deskjet 450 and it downloaded the driver, it works fine, BUT it does not give me a notification icon or "safely remove hardware". So when I'm done printing I just disconnect the USB.

ALSO, since it doesn't connect with the HP software, I can't see how much ink is left (!).

Are these two things normal? Anything I can do about them?

Hello alkaufmann,

If you are signed in to the same Microsoft account on both PCs and have sync turned on in Microsoft Edge, then the favorites should eventually sync. Usually within 24 hours.

If you like, you could also manually backup and restore your favorites in Microsoft Edge to effectively export and import.

I'm new to the forum and have a small problem that is driving me crazy. Searching all over different forums and the rest of the internet has left me without an answer.

I understand that the taskbar clock will go out of sync once in a while. The problem is I can't sync with the internet time autoupdate option. It gives me an error but doesn't say what's wrong.

Go to the internet time tab. Synchronize your time with one of the servers. If during the day, this does not keep the time, Then the CMOS battery on the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Use group policy

If you have a domain then create a policy in the OU that you want. If this is a stand alone machine or in a workgroup then use the local policy.

The settings are located in the same place either way. Here are the steps for the Local Policy:

Start -> Run -> MMC
File -> Add -> Group Policy -> Local Machine
Browse to the following: Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> User Rights Assignment
Click on Change System Time on the Right -> Add or Remove the Users or groups that you want to be able to change the time


Only the users or groups that are listed will be able to change the system time. If all users of the machine are administrators then remove the Administrator group and add in your account so that the time can still be changed if necessary.

Also I read you can Remove TIMEDATE.cpl from C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM will remove the ability to change the date/time

They suggested not to delete it, but move it to another source.

Hope this helps

I am having trouble setting my laptop so the date and time read minus 05.00 GMT automatically from date and time in SP2. When I open date and time, there is no -05.00 only goes as far as minus 04.60 and straight to minus 06.00, No setting for New York or Canada. Also the drop down map in date and time has nothing on it, by this I mean the map that shows when you are trying to change the time, it is in blue an green, Is there anyone who can help me? Is it possible to download the files for date and time for xp2?

You might need a new cmos battery on your motherboard. They are rather easy to replace these days. If you have a Batteries Plus store nearby you can pick up a new battery there.

Ok when i run the system mechanic registry optimizer, i always get the same list of things to remove. The Value data looks like 'Low Date Time, 98939u82, high Date Time 983948'***binary mof compiled succesfully. They are connected to values such as... advapi32.dll, mssmbios.sys, ACPI.sys, ipnat.sys and so on...
Any clues what this means?

A:Low Date Time?

I'm having the same problem, and don't know what to do about it. It is filling my registry with invalid entries, and makes my computer do weird things. I was playing sims2, and it froze. The only way to get out of it was a hard shutdown. (flick the switch on the power supply). When I restarted my computer the date had changed to 1/1/2003.

I am a complete novice. However, I experienced a similar problem with the windows clock before the Smitfraud virus manifested itself on my PC. The virus hides in the W32 folder and cannot be removed by Panda. And now I cant boot my PC!!!. As, you probably know, you can find information on this site about how to remove the virus... if it is a virus.

Hello and Welcome to TSF

The easiest way to prevent users from changing the system time is by deleting the file TIMEDATE.CPL, located in the Windows\System folder.

Hey Art. There are two batteries in the laptops. One is the usual power battery which is
normally about 3 inches wide and 5 inches long. The other one is a lithium battery which
has a seperate enclosure, might be a small door on the bottom of the laptop. This
battery is the 'time battery'. Lasts about 3 to 5 years...

Anyone know if windows xp has a method of showing the date in the sys tray? I have the time showing ok but I carnt find any way of showing the date.

Or does anyone know where I can get a freeware utility to do this?

A:Date and time

The date does show, but only if there is room for it to do so.

Unlock the taskbar and make it double height (drag the top up)
The date will show under the time.

Otherwise download and run TClock.exe

Excel 2007,
Worksheet row with dates starting with 1/1/2013-ending w/12/31/2013.
On row directly above the date row I have a cell for each day of date row formatted "Custom" "ddd"
My problem is this: eg, today's date of 1/20/2013 reflects "Fri" instead of "Sun" in cell above date cell.
The serial number for date: 1/20/2013 shows 41294. The serial number 41296 reflects Sun.
What is going on here and how must I correct it?

This is quite odd.
I am continually resetting the system clock on my computer. This problem effects all three operating systems, so I'm assuming it has something to do with the BIOS or the motherboard. Further, even though I've made sure that any forums or applications that display a time stamp have been configured correctly for my time zone, they all have a different time being displayed. No two times are ever the same on any given applications.
Has anyone ever seen this?

Changing time on a system is an indicator that it might be the CMOS battery. Replace it and see if that solves the problem.

A:Possible Date/ Time Issues - Please Help

You can remove the cmos battery without causing any harm, it will reset your time and date. You will need to manually set the clock either in the bios or from windows by clicking on the clock in the system tray (bottom right corner by default). The cmos battery stores settings in the bios including the time/clock. If the cmos battery is dead, when the computer is unplugged from the wall the bios resets, the clock will reset along with any other settings that were changed from default values. It should not cause any harm.
While you have the case open, I recommend dusting the computer out with canned air, be careful not to bump any components, then check for blown or bulging capacitors, sometimes these will cause crashes. Examples:
If you have any blown or bulging capacitors it is generally recommended you replace the mainboard or replace the machine. In most cases bad caps cause instability, crashes or complete failure of the component with the bad caps.
