You're asking how to essentially steal the intellectual property of someone. I realize it may not be a malicious thought at all. But the watermark is there to ensure the image is paid for if it is to be sued. By circumventing copyright protection measure, you are trying to steal the image.

However... how the mark disappears in Explorer.. when images are saved in some formats they contain individual "preview" images or thumbnails within themselves. It is these thumbnails Explorer or the Mac Finder use to provide a mini-preview. Depending upon how the watermark was applied and its nature, it may not show in the thumbnail previews contained within the image file due to the generally drastic size reduction for the thumbnail previews.

There is no method to "magically" strip a watermark off of an image other than paying for the image without the watermark.
