That normal. The only way to fix that is to upgrade the OS to Consumer Preview or the RTM version.

Till the end of January they have it for $39.99 (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/buy?ocid=GA8_O_WOL_Hero_ShopHP_FPP_Null)

Unfortunately not. This is by design. The license for Release Preview expired on January 15, 2013. That's the reason for all those reboots.

It is a very bad idea to install release code over top of release candidate or earlier beta(s).
You were given a hint earlier as to the cause and the effect. Think about it.
