Windows 7: End of NT Evaluation Period Blue Screen Crash

End of NT Evaluation Period Blue Screen Crash

Hi I'm new to Windows 7 and I really like it. I'm also new to this forum.

The problem is that every two hours, my computer restarts and it is really annoying. I had searched through Google, it people said to turn the Automatically Restart button off. So I did.

After turning it off, it restarted in two hours, and there was the blue screen saying "End of NT Evaluation Period" It is really confusing, I think I already activated Windows 7 because there are no more warnings or something like that popping up anymore.

I tried looking at other threads about this but it was too "Advanced" since I'm a n00b.

I guess I should put my specs.

Processor : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core
Processor 3800+ 2.01 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) : 2.00 GB
System Type: 32-bit Operating System

I don't know if that's it. Please explain the things easily cause, I'm new to this.

Thanks for Helping

The evaluation period for the free Release Candidate is ending. That is the cause of the restarts every 2 hours.
You'll have to purchase a copy of Win7 if you want to keep using it.

30-day Evaluation Period
Hello, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why there is a 30-day "evaluation" period prior to activation. Typically, someone downloads a evaluation to try out the software prior to making a purchase. However, that is not the case with Windows as a customer would have to...
