    Upgrade from Windows 7 RC to the retail version



    ByFred Langa

    Microsoft's Engineering Windows 7 blog documents a little-known Win7 upgrade path from the Release Candidate.

    If you're using the Windows 7 RC, you can upgrade directly to the final, retail release of Win7 Ultimate, though following this unsupported upgrade path isn't for everyone.

    With regard to having to start, or re-start, Explorer, in order to get the Desktop back.

    I re-start Explorer fairly regularly, to reclaim the hundreds of megabytes that it eventually gobbles and never releases. Usually this works, but not always. A re-boot is sometimes required to get my memory utilization back down to 800 MB from the eventual 1.4 GB. I also need to re-start FireFox and ThunderBird, as they also consume enormous amounts of memory over time.

    A better way to handle startup programs is to get WinPatrol by BillP Studios. Among other things, this allows you to specify when each startup program actually begins to run. I let the most important ones start when I boot, and then start the others every few minutes for the next hour or so.
