You are Welcome. If this doesn't work, probably you will need to do a clean install.

I went on to the 7 site and got another key, I just assumed it would have to be an RC key?

Am I running the correct windows 7, does it matter? I am running Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, 6.1.7100 build 7100. I do not know if there is any difference between Beta and RC, I pressume I am running the Beta version

7100 is the RC version. I think it is better perform a clean Installation.
