Windows 7 Custom Watermark

Does anyone know how to customize the watermark on Windows 7 Enterprise x64?  I tried the suggestion on the link below, but after its saved, and I reboot, it still applies the old one and when I reopen it in the resource hacker, its the old windows and build number text.

I had to logoff and logon 2x for this to change

Another way is

Resource Tuner: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QCSDV798

1. Get Res Tuner.
2. Locate C:\Windows\system 32\En-us
3. Find User32.dll.mui
4. Take ownership of it.
5. Open it in res tuner.
6. Modify string 45 (line 715-716)
7. Save the file
8. Restart

I'm not prejudiced.  I could have uploaded the file to my own servers, put it on amazon S3, used the link with a 302 redirect from somewhere else.. but why bother. it is 3 batch files and 2 .reg files

ve3ofa: I understand how to turn on the watermark... but I want to be able to change both of those lines or put a watermark somewhere else on the screen.  I will give Resource Tuner a shot, but last time I tried with Win 7 Enterprise x64; even though I change the file, it wouldn't save it.  And after a reboot it changed back.

you forgot to take ownership of the file and also "run as administrator"

put a watermark somewhere else on the screen

Can't be done using these methods: bottom right is fixed

you can always change the wallpaper
