Since our membership is much larger than any other previous Windows release I think a thread like this is necessary. If you have Windows 7 questions, that is fine, it is a public beta. But keep in mind that there were a lot of ways to get Windows 7 before it became public. If you got your copy from anyone other than Microsoft there is no guarentee it hasn't been modified in some way. For us here at techspot to troubleshoot and try and help you out we need to only deal with copies that came directly from Microsoft. If you have a pirated copy and have problems, and then ask about them in here, it does nobody any good because we aren't able to determine whether it is a legit problem or a problem that occurs because of something that happened to your source before you got it. This is going to have to be an honor system of sorts since its impossible for us to determine where you got your copy from, but please don't post with problems here if your copy is not one from Microsoft. Like I said its free from Microsoft right now, go ahead and get it from them if you really want to give it a shot. Here is the download link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/dd353205.aspx With that said, I want to remind you that this is still Beta software, it is not a final release. Betas are expected to have bugs in them, so there may be issues that no matter how much you post about it, we will not be able to solve for you.
