Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera ?

Movie Watermark Just purchased a Canon SD300 and shot a test video. After downloading to the PC using the provided Canon software it now has "PC Video" and "www.jpg.com" stamped on each frame. Why is this occuring? It does not show up on the in-camera preview, so I assume it is being added by the downloading software. Any help on how to stop this from occuring would be much appreciated. Thanks.
