I've got a quite strange problem (I think). My windows version (I'm running windows 7 Home Premium) is not showing when I go to see system preferences. I've installed a windows 8 skin, can this be the problem, and how can I fix it? (don't want to delete the skin though).

Hope you can help, thanks :-)

What does "Control Panel -> System and Security -> System" show? – Brad Patton Mar 14 '13 at 19:36
It shows all the information it should, except the top collum saying "Windows version" wich is blank :(. How can I fix this?? – Mads L.M Mar 16 '13 at 0:37

just go to your command prompt (via start menu) and type the following command:


This will display the windows version and details

Alternatively you can run the same command from Start->Run
