Mine does not match! I have done Avast scans of the setup exe and it detects nothing.

My question is...if the hash does not match, do I have an infected version for sure? Thanks.

Maybe...maybe not but I wouldn't risk it....just wait a little over 24hrs and you will be able to jump in the line with several million others for the legitimate item direct from MS.

If you have installed it already....I wouldn't do any internet banking...just in case....

That's what scares me....I already have. Stupid move on my part. I will be changing my OS tomorrow and changing my passwords.

My x86 hash matches
My x64 does not and it's on my main machine

It may not be infected with a virus. Some people just took away the watermark. At least that's what they say. I wouldn't trust it. Don't do any banking online, just in case.

I just switched to an x64 copy that matches. From what I'm reading, there's no difference between the current popular downloads on "alternative" sites and the real RC. So, it would be a waste of time to download the "official RC" tomorrow. I don't know....I'm sure it's been discussed here. What do you guys know? I think it's the same one. I saw a screenshot of the Technet download page and it shows the same number as the copy I'm running. What are you guys going to do?

Why is Windows 7 center.com posting this article? They are saying "today's the day the public RC is available for download" Did I miss something?

Maybe it is tomorrow where the poster is today? You know, timezones and all that ruck.

That's what I thought too but.....see the date. I wonder if someone knows something we don't. Maybe MS is going to get a jump on things to keep the servers cooler.

Yeah, arrogance got me on this one. I didn't even bother checking the hashes until much later.....

Everything still scans clean though

I'll grab the official anyway. Closing the stable door and all that...

That's OK I still haven't checked the Hashes on mine either, but I did download mine from the original leaked torrent.

MSDN copy of Build 7600 "not genuine"
