Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Tired of the constant barrage of spam, spyware, viruses and other 'net nasties? We show you how to rebuke the onslaught of hacker attacks, protect your identity and keep your sanity, all at the same time.

 

- Is the new Vista interface making your trigger finger itch? Ours, too…that is, until we turned Windows inside out, shook out all the loose parts and figured out just what makes this beast tick. Learn from our pain and suffering.

 

- If you finally broke down and purchased a Windows Media Center computer, or you think you have one and didn't even know it, then you are holding just the book for you. We show you how to get up to speed with your new computer, transforming it from the little PC that could into the media juggernaut you never knew it could be.

 

- From-the-trenches advice on upgrading to Windows 7 (from Vista and XP) - including detailed rollout advice for IT managers. Plan and manage deployment of Windows easily and efficiently - whether you're upgrading just a handful of computers, or an entire corporation!

 

- Hands-on coverage of installing, configuring and surviving on a Windows 7-based network. We not only show you how to set up Windows networking features, we show you how to install and setup basic networking hardware.

 

- Improved technology for sharing files with other platforms, such as Novell Netware, Unix and Linux, Macintosh and other Windows flavors. No longer will the Macs in your network be segregated from the Windows users.

Book News Annotation:

The authors of other Windows titles acknowledge that Windows 7, the latest version of the Microsoft operating system launched in October 2009, does require consulting references beyond its online help feature. But Cowart and Knittel consider it a significant improvement worth upgrading to from Windows XP and Windows Vista. Starting with an overview to guide decisions on which version to purchase, they cover Windows improved interface, security, Web browsing, performance, multimedia, networking, and system management and stability features. A trial online edition is available. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
