Remove Windows 2000 Build Number Display


Getting tired of seeing Windows NT build number? Remove it with the following
Windows 2000 registry hack:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Key: Control
Panel\Desktop\

Name: PaintDesktopVersion
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0


Opps! Sorry – this hack does not work on W2K later than RC1.

One method to eliminate the build number is to turn on Active Desktop / Show
Web Content option (right click desktop).

Tweakui has the option to eliminate the
build number:

General|Effects|Show Windows Version on Desktop
