How to disable Windows 7 desktop message “Test mode Windows 7 build 7600”

If when you boot your Windows 7-based computer and you receive the following message ‘Test mode Windows 7 build 7600‘ in the lower-right corner of the desktop, then this article may interest you.

This message is displayed because your computer is running in test mode. The test mode was added to Windows, so that users can test programs without having to provide an authentication certificate.

The test mode watermark can appear if the test signing mode is started on the computer. This test mode may occur if an application whose drivers are not digitally signed by Microsoft is installed and still in the test phase.

To manually disable the test mode message, do the following;
Method 1
– Click Start, and then type cmd in the Search box.
– Right-click cmd.exe under Programs, and then click Run as administrator.
– At the command prompt, type the following text; bcdedit /set TESTSIGNING OFF, then hit ENTER
– Close the Command Prompt window, and then restart your computer.

Now check to see if the message has been disabled, if not proceed with method 2

Method 2
– Click Start, and then type cmd in the Search box.
– Right-click cmd.exe under Programs, and then click Run as administrator.
– At the command prompt, type the following commands, and press ENTER after each command:

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF

– Close the Command Prompt window, and then restart your computer.

Check to see if the message has been disabled. Alternatively, to fix this problem automatically, download and run Microsoft Fix it 50756 solution.
