    Hi,
    I keep reading about KB971033 but it has never appeared in my list of updates (I update regularly). I checked intalled updates and it's not there either.
    Must say that I have a Slic 2.1 modified bios and "i'm still genuine".

    Anyone with the same experience?

    Rgds:cool:

    Well... It was an optional update... There was no check box against it... So, if you let windows automartically download and istall, then I would venture this did not get installed...

    I downloaded it by clicking on the check box, and I passed the WAT test on line.

    My SLIC was modded to 2.1 and I applied the certificate & license..

    Really weird.. I stumbled onto this forum and found out about this update.. I then noticed mine too was redflagged. I removed the update.. reinstalled the loader, went directly to validation and passed. I tooked the extra step in the task manager to remove the 90 recall check .. but 5 days later still ok...

    remember if anyone installed the previous version posted here the pre released one a lot of people are not seeing it in win updates due to it seeing they already have it. not sure that is your case but worth a mention

    the pre-released one installed on one of my machines called home on 12th feb and set the next check for 13/05 in the rask scheduler. The official version showed up on the 17th. Duly installed it, it also called home on the 17th, but didnt set a new tak in the task scheduler. Bit strange.

    Hi,
    Not as far as I kow - Unless it's done it automatically, which I doubt. The point I raised was that it doen't appear anywhere. If it were installed, it would appear in the 'intalled updates', wouldn't it ?

    How do you remove 90 day recall check? Can you be a little detailed?

    Win7 Ult Spanish here, and windows update doesn't show any KB971033 yet. I haven't installed the leaked update nor validated online.

    Well, I suppose I'll have to wait for the international flavor of WAT :p

    "This pre-release version of Windows 7 Ultimate will expire in 0 hours. To keep using Windows, back up your files, and then install any edition of Windows 7 Ultimate"
    I'm new here. I have no idea what is happening. and I haven't installed KB917033 as the settings are manual. Set the manual setting, as I had issues previously due to an update.

    I can see you are not a great fan of loaders:)

    Right.
    So what's the question?
    You don't have proper windows 7 installed: you have a pre-release version which was widely advertised as expiring like it just has.
    Why are you surprised?
    To fix it, do as it says: Wipe and re-install the final RTM version of windows 7.

    Why not?
    It tells you what's happening in the message you posted.
    Can't you read?

    And like a few others, I haven't yet received the KB971033 update.
    Is there a particular reason for M$ to act differently?
    Any ideas?
