NON corrupt download

I have gone to the official MICROSOFT download page for the Windows 7 RC‏ - installed the ACTIVE X program so I could download the thing BUT, Windows 7 RC‏ is corrupt -- has ANYONE successfully downloaded a non corrupt version of the Windows 7 RC‏ that will successfully install with no errors -- just an ENG version of 32 bit -- I will keep searching elsewhere also - I have attempted on a couple of different computers the download always ends up corrupt

Have you gone here and read all instructions before downloading and burning the ISO?

It has happened to me too. I've downloaded twice and both times got a message saying that it was a corrupt download and that I should download it again.

current VISTA

I finally was able to get a working copy - not sure what happened but, since I had bought a new hard drive specifically for the use of 7 without having to backup or worry about any crashing - I had a problem that i think I found out later the reason why i had to take a different route but, ending installing from my VISTA set-up disk - then downloaded in that state - so, not sure if it worked because, of no antivirus at the time - I don't know can't think of anything for the cause other but, it did take me several on the other & always had the corrupt problem BUT it finally did work SO, I can't say BUT, I can tell you after a day now, that is alot like VISTA - you have more control over the appearance however, with me you have to run a screen res of 1024 x 768 - if, you run 800 x 600 which I run on my other operating systems it's kind of blurry SO, to compensate for the small look of the 1024 x 768 resolution you have to use a larger font size - there are certain key feature missing at the moment like e-mail BUT, you can download WINDOWS LIVE ESSENTIALS & has an e-mail program included similar to WINDOWS MAIL on VISTA - everything is pretty much task bar driven SO, for me - I had to create short cuts on my desktop to key programs & folders as you would normally have it with XP or VISTA - there are certain places that you can get a classic view look but, not in all like you can on XP and NOT from the START/ PROGRAMS - the new version of AVAST ANTI-VIRUS (which is free & has some great praise) does work with 7 AND I also installed ADVANCED SYSTEM CARE to keep it optimized 7 tuned up -- it does NOT come with word persay BUT, the new version of WORDPAD does have more ability than old so, they may have consolidated to this --- HOWEVER, of course being still technically a beta I sure MS may still & I sincerely hope add more features & abilities before the final release - I am so glad i was able to get the download to work as it stands right now I am grateful for NOT having to have bought this system at this time -- it is very much like VISTA but, at the moment alot of key features & abilities missing that you have with VISTA -- SO, you definitely stick with VISTA or even better XP which still stands to me as the best so far EXCEPT ONLY: for the stability that you have with VISTA or 7
