Que crafted this book to grow with you, providing the reference material you need as you move toward Vista proficiency and use of more advanced features. If you buy only one book on Vista, Special Edition Using Microsoft ® Windows ® Vista is the only book you need.

   

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.
Ready to upgrade? We provide from-the-trenches advice on upgrading to Windows Vista—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!
Want to set up a network at work or at play? Check out our hands-on coverage of installing, configuring and surviving on a Windows Vista-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. No other Windows book goes as deeply into networking as the one you are holding.
Do you like to fileshare, but wish you could share with the open source community and Apple users? The wait is over; share files with other platforms, such as Novell Netware, Unix, Linux, Macintosh, and other Windows flavors. No longer will the Macs in your network be segregated from the Windows users.
