Only way to solve the problem is to install full Win7. Can't help you with the notes I'm afraid.

We've known for months that the evaluation copies of Windows 7 were going to start losing functionality in March. It's never sensible to ignore the inevitable. Don't be a cheapskate - buy the thing now.

No idea what you mean by Desktop Notes.

Desktop notes? or Sticky Notes?
Can you start Win 7 Sticky Notes going through Start, typing Sticky Notes in the search bar?

Also, you'll need to do a clean Win 7 RTM (final retail version) installation. You can't do an inplace upgrade from RC (eval copy) to RTM.

For Firefox you want to back up your Firefox profile: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Profiles

For IE you probably want to use a program like BackRex Internet Explorer. It allows you to backup favorites, history, proxy settings, fonts, dialup accounts, autocomplete passwords and cookies.

Mobileman,

While most people who tested Windows 7 have now moved to the final version, some are still running the Release Candidate. If you haven’t moved yet, it’s time to replace the RC. Starting on March 1, 2010 your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Your work will not be saved during the shutdown. The Windows 7 RC will fully expire on June 1, 2010. Your PC running the Windows 7 RC will continue shutting down every two hours and your files won’t be saved during shutdown. In addition, your wallpaper will change to a solid black background with a persistent message on your desktop. You’ll also get periodic notifications that Windows isn’t genuine. That means your PC may no longer be able to obtain optional updates or downloads requiring genuine Windows validation. To avoid interruption, please reinstall a prior version of Windows or move to Windows 7. In either case, you’ll need to do a custom (clean) install to replace the RC. As with any clean installation, you’ll need to back up your data then reinstall your applications and restore the data. For more details about replacing the RC, see the Knowledge Base article KB 971767 available here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971767 . For more information, visit the Window 7 Forum available at the following link: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/category/... . Thanks again for helping us test Windows 7.

If you have a backup solution with enough space, you can just back up your entire User folder... that will contain all your data (documents, pictures, email, etc.). Of course, if you've save anything outside of those folders, then that doesn't get backed up.
