Windows 7: Ordering from Microsoft

Windows 7 Build 7229 x64 (clean install)
Ordering from Microsoft

I ordered 3 copies of Windows 7 Home Premium on the preorder discount on 6-26-09. My order has not been shipped on the 23rd of October.They say they are still processing my order, yet they took out the money early on the 22nd! I will never order from the Microsoft Store again. I see that all the other retailers sent their shipments out so they would be received on the 22nd. Microsoft Store Sucks!

Is there any way to contact some customer service and enquire about it?

And my only guess is they're most likely overwhelmed as with it being a Microsoft store, the majority of people wanting Windows 7 would have wanted to order straight from Microsoft.

Windows 7

It came up in another thread. When should I receive my copy of Windows 7?
Evidently that page isn't necessarily up to date. Your order may have shipped already. Kind of funny though, my order was listed as "Delayed" and I emailed them about it today and an hour later it changed to "Processing".

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM

Got my email & downloaded my 2 copies from Microsoft Store yesterday.
No problems.

MS actually indicated elsewhere that things are shipping from them on time.

The order status updates are simply lower priority and not reflecting things actually having shipped. You can ignore something saying it's "still processing," and can assume it's actually shipped.

And no, all the other retailers did not send things out to arrive on the 22nd. They got sent early many places in England because of an anticipated postal strike. But places like Amazon in the U.S. aren't still shipping until next week in many cases. And that was the main place used for preorders.

I use Ultimate Windows Tweaker to add "Take Ownership" to the right click context menu and today for some reason it became the default command for folders. This means that when I double click a folder it will take ownership of it instead of opening it. How can I re-order the right click context...

? about Pre-ordering game
When you pre-order a game, is it shipped in time so that it arrives by the release date? Or are they shipped on the release date? I thought about pre-ordering the new SimCity game, but wasn't sure about when I would get it. Thanks

On my old computer,winXP there was a feature that when I was ordering parts on-line I could click a tab and it would automatically enter all the necessary information. Don't know if this was part of XP or a plug-in from some other source. Does win 7 have a similar feature ???
