How to choose Microsoft Windows Vista Edition
Windows Vista launched with five versions right to target at varying business and home environments.



Window Vista Hardware Requirements
Windows Vista will need different minimum hardware for different editions. Microsoft has two levels of computer operability with Windows Vista; by providing a broad classification of minimum hardware requirements as Vista Capable PC and Vista Premium Ready PC.


Should You Upgrade to Windows Vista?
Whether you should upgrade to Vista depends on your needs, how well your current version of Windows is fulfilling them, and whether your hardware is up to the test. The decision is wholly yours (of course), but the following sections offer some suggestions, depending on where you’re coming from.


Migrating to Windows Vista
Upgrading an existing installation of the Windows desktop operating system to Windows Vista. Like the clean installation, an in-place upgrade also requires that you perform certain checks on the existing system hardware, device drivers, and applications to find out if they can be successfully ported to Windows Vista.The following explain the things you must take care of before performing an in-place upgrade.


How Is Windows Vista Different from Other Operating Systems?
Many people would agree that Vista is probably the best and worst operating system Microsoft has ever put together. It’s the best operating system from a security and possibly a reliability perspective. Even though it requires substantial hardware to run, Vista tends to use the hardware more efficiently so you actually get better performance. However, there are the downsides of too much security and very high hardware requirements to consider too. Just how much security or hardware do you need to perform word processing tasks?


Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit Architectures differences
From an administrator’s perspective, there are a number of important differences between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Vista. One of the most noticeable differences is that the 64-bit version tends to run faster because Vista can make use of the full 64 bits of a machine to reduce the number of operations required to perform some tasks. A 64-bit register also provides better and easier access to memory. The system also has wider buses to transfer information. In short, a 64-bit system has all kinds of additional resources that a 32-bit system lacks and Vista makes use of them all.


Fine tuning Vista IE 7 security settings
Internet Explore in Windows Vista has undergone massive changes and has many new security features, such as Protected Mode. What does that mean? In the past, Internet Explorer was prone to various different attacks, leaving it one of the weakest parts of the entire Windows operating system.


Windows Vista firewall
A firewall is a program that keeps track of what you’ve requested from the Internet. As information from the Internet comes streaming into your modem, the firewall takes a look at everything coming in. If the information is something you requested, the information rides in normally. If the information is not something you requested, the firewall rejects the information, so it never reaches your computer.


Manage Startup Programs Windwos Vista
The Startup folder in the Start menu is where most people go if they want Windows to start an application automatically when it boots. Just drag a shortcut to the program into the folder, and Windows will do the rest. Or, if there’s a program you don’t want Windows to load.


Using Your Pictures Folder in Windows Vista
As with documents, you store pictures in folders. Windows Vista already has a couple of built-in folders especially well suited for storing pictures.


Using Your Pictures Folder in Windows Vista
You can print any picture, or group of pictures, right from the Explorer bar. First, get to the folder that contains the pictures you want to print and perform the steps that follow.


Deactivating Windows Vista Sharing Wizard
You can use the File Sharing Wizard to apply simple permissions to folders that you’re sharing with the network. If you’ve used Windows XP in the past, you no doubt noticed that the File Sharing Wizard is at least an improvement over XP’s useless Simple File Sharing feature, and it certainly makes it easy to apply basic permissions.


Setting Windows Vista Sharing Permissions on Shared Folders
You can share a folder with advanced permissions. You use these permissions to decide who has access to the folder and what those users can do with the folder. You can also apply advanced permissions to entire security groups rather than individual users. For example, if you apply permissions to the Administrators group, those permissions automatically apply to each member of that group.


Publishing a Windows Vista Calendar on the Network
Windows Calendar, a decent little program for managing your schedule. You can create appointments (both one-time and recurring), set up all-day events, schedule tasks, apply reminders to appointments and tasks, and view appointments by day, week, or month. This all works great for individuals, but a busy family needs to coordinate multiple schedules.


Windows Vista Web Browser Security
The web browser, an attacker can also get into your computer by using an exploit in a web browser by tricking you into installing a web component that has malicious code inside. Internet Explorer has many security settings built in that will help you keep safe.


Sharing Information Using OLE in Windows Vista
Object Linking and Embedding is far more flexible and can be far more complicated than cut-and-paste or drag-and-drop. OLE enables you to use all your software applications to create an integrated document. For instance, you might want to create an annual report that includes these components:


Creating Linked or Embedded Objects in Windows Vista
The way you link or embed an object depends on the application programs you're using-the program into which you want to embed or link the object. Most programs have a menu command to create an object by using OLE.


Windows Vista Configuration Files
Windows stores its configuration information in a variety of files of different formats, including files for configuring Windows itself and files for running Windows and DOS programs. Windows comes with the System Configuration tool (or Msconfig, for short) to help make controlled changes to some of its configuration files.

Increasing Windows Vista File System Performance
On new systems today with such fast processors, the biggest bottleneck is the performance of the hard drive itself. All Windows operating systems use virtual memory.They do this by a process referred to as paging.
