    I've been getting this message every day that my windows 7 is going to expire.
    I thought I had an RTM build of it, and it's been activated with windows-loader, but now I've gotten this all of the sudden.

    It's down to 10 days, so I'm starting to worry.

    I can't get it to pop up now, but it basically says "Back up important data, you are running a prerelease version of windows 7 and it will expire in 10 days.

    I think I might've installed a prerelease of SP1, so maybe that's causing it? IDK..I just want it fixed!

    It looks you're still running beta. It's normal to expire - install RTM :cool:

    Most likely. Get rid of it and install the final SP1, why do you even use pre-releases of SP's anyway, it's a waste of time imo ;)

    Yeah, some people just knows best...in their opinion... ;]

    Just install RTM & SP1 and you're good to go several decades! ^^

    final version is 7601.17514.
    RC sp1 will expire soon and not 17514

    Or even better install Media Refresh version no need for separate SP1.
