    Since it didn’t work, I took it back to 0 to avoid further problems, in general.

      That is very unusual it didn’t work for you – it is a very simple method to remove W8 watermark.
      Did you purchase your W8 pro or upgrade ?

        Upgrade. I reformatted it in a computer shop. At first, it only appeared 1 week (I think) after I reformatted it.

        Copy your wallpaper from ‘Themes’ folder and paste it in Cache folder
        Cached files contains Watermark added.
        replace wallpaper image in cache folder to your original wallpaper.

      There are a number of reasons this method works for some and not for others –

      1. You must have a purchased copy of W8 – to even attempt this method.
      2. Microsoft have changed the way the watermark can and cant be removed.
      3. If there are updated methods to remove the watermark – i will update the POST – if and when i have the details.

      Thanks for visiting discoveryfx
