Windows 7 release candidate (RC) will soon expire

From the 15th of February expiration messages will appear just above the task bar, on machines still running the release candidate. From March 1 onward shut downs will happen every 2 hours

All users who installed the Windows 7 release candidate will soon have to upgrade or revert back to Vista
