You must actiavte today? Windows 7 RTM shutdown 1 day?

Just installed the lastest windows 7 official RTM build I ran windows update and a watermark appeared on the bottom right of the screen saying this copy of windows is not genuine. After rebooting I have a black screen and a prompt telling me I must activate windows today! What happened to the 30 day grace period?

Am I the only one with this problem?

Thanks,

Open an elevated command prompt and type slmgr-rearm and press Enter. Wait for the prompt and restart the computer.

try typing 'cd\' and then press enter first.

It's just because it's looking in the 'C:\Users\Boomstick' folder for 'slmgr' why that error happens.

EDIT: Oops, my bad, it's the lack of the space in 'slmgr-rearm', it has to have the space before the switch (the minus sign)..
should be 'slmgr -rearm'

@Boomstick:
You need to have a space between slmgr and -rearm, like so:

slmgr[SPACE]-rearm

nope, you are doing it wrong. You have to open an elevated command prompt. That is, click Start and in the Start Search box, type cmd and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter. Click Continue on the User Account Control box.
Now in the command prompt window, type slmgr -rearm and press Enter.
(There is a space between slmgr and -).
