Windows A little earlier than expected, Microsoft has already released the Windows 7 release candidate to the general public. The Redmond company had already put the RC up for download on TechNet and MSDN, but from now on, everyone can download it. I've already updated all my Windows machines to the RC, so let's take a quick look at what I found. Note: The Windows XP Mode beta is also set to arrive today, but has not yet been made available. We'll update this item accordingly once it's released. Update: The Windows XP Mode beta is also available. Get it now!

Win 7 randomly locks up every application currently open. First i thought it was Firefox, but this also happens when using IE or any other application.
All applications will then be reported as "not answering" and I can't even Ctrl+Alt+Del to enter the task manager... I can only do so much as move the cursor.

Maybe it's related to the beta Nvidia driver for Win7.
