If yes, so **** Microsoft
Hello Coconut, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When the RC expires, your Windows 7 will no longer work.

You will not need to repurchase Windows 7 though.

Before this date since you cannot uninstall the RC, you will just need to backup anything that you do not want to lose, do a clean install with the upgrade Windows 7 (click on link), and install the final RTM version of SP1.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yep, you will just need to enter the same Windows 7 product key number and activate it after installation as shown in the link above for doing a clean install with a upgrade Windows 7 copy.

Coconut,

Since this is not the SP1 RTM that you have installed, then yes it will expire.

Before it expires, you will need to backup anything that you do not want to lose, do a clean install with the upgrade Windows 7 (click on link), and install the SP1 RTM final version.

Uninstall SP1 didn't fix problems

Yesterday I installed SP1. After the reboot I found that Quickbooks wouldn't run anymore, AVG antivirus was disabled and there's a "contribute" error in Outlook. My business depends on Quickbooks, so I uninstalled SP1 through the Add/Remove and windows updates. Rebooted, didn't help. Tried the command as administrator remove and it said that file wasn't installed. All my system restore dates are gone now, so there's no way to restore. Registry Mechanic didn't help. Other suggestions were multiple boots and holding CTRL while starting Quickbooks, none of which made any difference.

Microsoft was no help, nor was Intuit. Machine was working fine before the install.

You folks seem to know what you're talking about. How can I undo the damage that SP1 has done without starting over from scratch?
