what i mean is i have been using window 7 rtm, and even though it is not ment to be out till 22/oct i have now activated it, and even when they said no keys are out yet,now i wait to see how long it will last

Right...got what you mean ! ...Your Windows7 build 7100.. will start shutting down every two hours on March 1st.next year..
Then it terminates on June 1st. 2010 and totally expires ..You'd better make sure you get your full Release to Manufacture version before then and before the price rockets!

Are you sure you understand? Release 7100 is RC1 not RTM.

Hi Pine Man....Yep...I fully understand the difference between Release Candidate and Release to Manufacture...but I don't think wizzboy may be sure!!..Some posters other than wizzboy have got mixed up between Release Candidate and RTM
So just in case...if he has Build 7100?....I mentioned the RC sequence of shutdown procedure..If you look at wizzboy's earlier post..you'll see why he confused more than myself :)

Have just seen that I'd missed wizzboy's other post about "cracks" and "activation" etc;
If I'd seen that ..I wouldn't have bothered trying to advise him about how long a genuine RC would last..Looks as if he as been somewhere he shouldn't have ?

Looks like wizzboy has confused a good few of us..I see his other threads have now disappeared! Looks as if he's confused himself as to the dubious origin of his download too! Its highly likely he has got the "Lenovo" stolen product key !
