Revert Windows 7 hack

By zrs_12 ·
Apparently my friend downloaded a hack to remove the watermark, expiration, and send feedback button for Windows 7 build 7000 and ran it. Now, I am missing the watermark and the send feedback button, and it remains to be seen if the expiration crack worked. Anyway, it's fine that the watermark is gone and I don't care if it expires or not, but I want the feedback button back. I agreed to help improve Windows 7 and need to send some feedback. Having the button right there was very convenient. So, does anyone know how I can get this back?

Step One - Switch off Windows UAC (User Account Control)

- Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts

- Find User Account Control, you?ll then be shown a vertical slider, move the slider to the bottom of the screen.

- Restart your computer.

Step Two - Rename user32.dll.mui

- Start Menu -> Computer -> C Drive -> Windows -> System32 -> en-US

- Your browser should now be at C:\Windows\System32\en-US\.

- Locate user32.dll.mui, right click it.
Select the ?Security? tab, click the ?Advanced? button and then visit the ?Owner? tab.

- Select the ?Edit? button and make yourself the owner of the file.

- Exit that dialog, saving changes and return to the original properties dialog.

- Click the ?Edit?? button, select Users and give yourself Full Control by selecting all the checkboxs.

- Exit properties saving changes.

- Rename user32.dll.mui to user32-backup.dll.mui.

Step Three - Finishing up

- Users of regular 32bit systems download
Users of 64bit systems download x64
This zip file contains a patched user32.dll.mui file.

- Extract the user32.dll.mui file and place it in the folder en-US (C:\Windows\System32\en-US\).

- Restart your system. Enjoy.
