RC 7100 no longer valid

I just turned on my pc and found out that the RC 7100 is no longer activated through microsoft. It says I have to back up my data and install an official windows 7 ultimate. I though that we had until March of 2010 to use the RC?...when did this change or is anyone else having the same issue?

1. It is an official RC...had it the day it came out.
2. when I type that in the command prompt is says " Windows 7 Ultimate unlicensed"...it was the last time I used it. Come to think of it...the last time I used it was before the release date of windows 7..could they have terminated the licenses for windows 7 RC since it has been released?

I was asking about the Key.

The key is what sets it from being trial or not trial.

Here is my info.

Came up alot of windows to hit ok on....alot of ??? and unactivated and unregristered things came up. Is it important to say that everytime I start windows now that Java runtime crashes for some reason. Could this be causing a core OS issue?
