i used windows update, all updates were installed but i can still see the messege in the lower right corner
Code:

Hi Spleshman and welcome,

Updates from Windows Update don't work that way. You won't get different builds from Windows Updates. Those updates are for such things as general stability and security.

You have to download a different build if that's what you want. I would suggest you get Windows 7 RC while you still can and run that until you're able to purchase Windows 7 when it's made generally available.

You can download the RC (build 7100) from here

Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC): Instructions for Free Download

You only have till August 20th to download the official RC.

If you're running the beta (Build 7000) there, you can do an upgrade install (repair install is the same thing) with the 7100 RC build. it will keep your programs and files. Just burn the 7100 build to disk that you downloaded and follow the tutorials instructions.

It already has. 7600.16385. It's the RTM (Release to Manufacturing) finalized version. But it isn't available officially yet. Only by mean we can not discuss here. If you want more information on when you'll be able to purchase it see here: When will you get Windows 7 RTM?
