If I were you find a website that has the original Windows 7 RC // RTM download that's on torrents or http server. I would link you but I have no idea if we are allowed to post links up

Any reason why a Windows 7 RC user such as myself should upgrade to RTM?

Oh, and thread jack, but for some reasons, none of my computers can access the files that are in My Documents. I have them shared and disabled the password protection thing.

Because come March your PC will shut off on the hour? I'd much rather move to RTM as soon as possible before you get too settled in with the RC since you need to do a clean install.

Really no workaround for this? no way to change out the key?
