    That's definitely relevant.

    Remember CCleaner was orginally named:
    Crap Cleaner  ;)
    If you dont know DOS, you dont know Windows...

    Thats why Bill Gates created the Windows NT Family.

    CCleaner gets rid of cookies; History; temp files and such...

    AGAIN this has nothing to do with a new installation of a MS Windows product...period.

        I think you're mixing it up. August 2009 is for the beta of windows 7, what i listed is for the windows 7 RC.


        Don't argue with the microsoft guys, just check out what they say here: http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/Windows-7/download.aspx

        March 1st is the date on which the 2 hr rebooting will start in effect

        June !st is when the RC expires so you either use it in restricted mod or you get yourself another non expiring o.s. working

        2x3i5x..... ;D

        Just recieved this from MS TechNet...thought you'ld enjoy it:

        Special Beta Edition -- Correction

        Because you signed up to test the Windows 7 Beta, we recently sent you mail about the expiration dates for the Beta and Release Candidate. Unfortunately, we made a mistake.

        We said the Beta would start shutting down every two hours on June 1, 2009. The correct date is July 1, 2009.


        The rest of the dates in the mail were correct. Here’s a quick summary:
        Version:
           
        Starts shutting down every two hours:
           
        Expires:

        August 1, 2009
        Release Candidate
           
        March 1, 2010
           
        June 1, 2010


        We apologize for the error and any confusion it may have caused.

        Thanks again for helping us test Windows 7.

          Sounds like a good date for the official release, I thought I heard that they were going to originally release it this fall/early winter?
