I want to modify the watermark text on Windows XP so that instead of "Windows XP Professional" it shows a different text of my choosing. I know XP's watermark text is hardcoded (automatic replacement of the watermark string was only made a thing in late 402x builds of Longhorn and Vista onwards) so can anyone help me find where the text for the watermark is stored or where it is contained?

Use PE Explorer. using Resource hacker would corrupt for win32k.sys.

Alright, I got the watermark changed. One more question: How do you change that Windows flag in the top right of explorer windows?
