it seems that you did not update 'xcolor' package properly. That's where \rowcolors is defined. In some instances, especially under MikTeX, the automatic update fails to update xcolor.sty. So, I suggest you download the latest xcolor package from the same place as the beamer package and then manually run 'latex xcolor.ins' to regenerate xcolor.sty. Then move the *.def and *.sty file to the proper places to gain full compatibility.
