Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Unfortunately I will be away from my computer until Saturday so I will get back to you then. Thanks for your help so far!

Updating Windows 7 RC?
I was looking around the forums for a fix for a problem I previously had and I read that we can up date Windows 7 Build 7100 to 7200 or something like that, is this a simple update or is it a big thing like re-installing the OS? Just wondering if it is worth upgrading or not? :) Thanks.
