Has your machine started to shutdown every couple of hours? The one thing you can do is to download a RC (release candidate) build 7100 or higher (current is 7260) and that doesn't expire till 2010.

Hope this helps

thanks Ken, no it hasnt started that yet.

If i download a newer version, does that mean I have to re-format my hard drive again ?

Any recommendations on where to find a newer version ?

Windows 7 RC build 7100x64 // 7260x32
 
 

A fresh install would be need so yes a reformat again..

The best one if you want a full working mostly bug free is the RC

Microsoft may still allow Rc downloads Link here

First go to sstart>search and type winver. If it says 7000 you will need to download a newer version. I dont know if you are 32bit or 64 but some kind sould here has the link for either.
vis-a-vie formatting. It is always preferred but you can upgrade from 7000>7100 or higher.
Also you will need to get a RC key from MS, also free at the download link.

Hope this helps ken

Upgrade to RC (7100) while you can still officially download it.

I recommend to install the last build for your system, x86/x64, you'll be better.

7232 is a definite improvement over 7100, and in my case over every other build.
