For some time now I have some problems with my Windows Vista 64 bit.
• On all four corners of my monitor I have text “ Test Mode” written. And at the top center it says, “Microsoft (R) Windows (R) (Build 6002:Service Pack 2)” on screen.
• Windows doesn’t go to sleep either from start menu or by selecting a power plan.
• When PC boots from cold just as the boot completes I get BSOD, when it restarts it boots OK.
I haven’t had any hardware changes lately, though I regularly update my Windows. I have also installed new software (mostly music editing).
Other software I have:
I have Norton Internet Security 2009 installed (had no problems with it).
I also have Norton SystemWorks installed. I usually use it for clean ups.
Anybody know about the “Test Mode” thing? How can I cancel this “Test Mode” thing?
At home, I right clicked CMD and selected to run as administrator.
At the dos prompt I typed bcdedit /set testsigning off. It prompted back, "The operation completed successfully." I re-started the PC and the"test mode" texts were removed. It worked!
Now I will concentrate on the sleep problem...
Thank you very much for your response fowang...
