    It's easy to by pass. I wonder if we will see a influx in win7 troubleshooting threads?

    Why would anyone create a certain app to stop shutdowns on a RC. The RTM will be out by then

    o trust me. a good few of people will still for some reason want to stay with the RC even if the OS is Final.

    But by that reasoning it would make more sense to make a "special" app for the RTM version.

    downloading the RC now, and to be honest it tells you that it will shut down etc when you read through the page. I don't mind this, i'll have the real thing by then
