Wondering how many people on this forum have the same problem I and many people worldwide have.
The problem being in Windows 7 SP1 beta update running and are unable to uninstall the update which you have to do when the final SP come's out very shortly. If you have upgrade and have done any Housekeeping on your PC ( Defrag, Disk cleanup etc) then the only way to remove the said update is by reformatting your HD back to factory settings, you have to do this because the uninstall files for the update are placed in the Temp folder only and is deleted when you do any of the above.
That's the life of a beta tester. I quite enjoyed it when testing 7 before release, now I've bought a copy I'm only installing proper releases...I use this PC daily and it's full of data I want to keep.
Nope can't re-install it as it's already on the PC.
I understand about Beta and have done a log of testing but this is the 1st time I've come across anything like this.
Maybe MS will do something as a lot of people are in the same boat

Have you kept any old system images from Win7 Backup?
Advent laptop/Dell Inspiron 6000/Dell mini all using XP and 2Gb RAM
Dell Studio 15 with Win7 and 4Gb RAM
Belkin N router (cable) (VM 20Mb
Voyager 2100 via BT line (8Mb/s) as backup
BT Option 3 / Virgin cable 20Mbs
IE8 and OE6 (Live Mail with Win7)
Simple answer is No I never did and yes I am a fool for not doing so but at the time had a lot of no PC issues to deal with so it just went out of my head.
I've done my laptop now and have installed and then uninstalled SP1 RC.
Still hope MS comes up with something
