How to remove info from Desktop in XP

In the bottom right hand corner (above the clock)is info giving Window XP Home,Build 2600 and other information which is shown whenever I logon.I would like to remove it and just have the normal Windows logo in the centre. I suspect but am not 100% sure that it might be connected with a program called System Mechanic.Anyone know how to remove this writing?

System Mechanic is probably running at start up (and taking up resources) could never get on with it myself.

Start - Run - type msconfig press OK - start up tab - untick System mechanic.
