Have you updated to Vista SP2 and are getting a “Windows Vista (TM) Evaluation Copy. Build 6002” watermark on your desktop? Well that’s how it is meant to be… Careful reading during installation of the SP2 will reflect:
Service Pack Information
SP2 Beta is pre-release code which will change before the final release of SP2
Windows Server 2008 SP2/Windows Vista SP2 Beta is time-limited software that will operate until May 1st, 2010 – Un-install Windows Server 2008 SP2/Windows Vista SP2 Beta before May 1st, 2010
After SP2 installation your desktop may display the text “Evaluation Copy”. This does not mean that your system is no longer “Genuine”, only that you have installed a test version of software which is time-limited
After installing the service pack, the “Evaluation Copy” text may show up on the 2nd boot
After un-installing the services pack, the “Evaluation Copy” text may remain during the first boot, but will disappear after the next reboot
Starting any Windows Server 2008 SP2 or Windows Vista SP2 installations will result in Microsoft collecting information about the installation process
To remove the watermark – read here.
However, I haven’t still figured out a way to make the updates work… My updates have somehow got disabled and my system crashes on trying to update.. Even the defender updates don’t work.. Plus there is no uninstall option in add / remove programs..
Waiting for a solution… Will update this post once I find a solution.
