A guide to Windows XP covers such topics as installation, system configuration, networking, applications, security, and maintenance and repair.


While most Windows books concentrate on a ground floor approach, Platinum Edition Using Microsoft Windows XP takes an entirely different approach - one that assumes the reader is a bona fide Windows black belt who wants or needs to manage multiple users in a networked environment, turbocharge a Windows installation with registry tweaks or stop hackers in their tracks. This book doesn't waste time telling the reader how to simply live with Windows - it tells the user how to squeeze every last drop of performance from it.

The CD contains one hour of video from! This unique video package brings Bob and Brian right to the reader's desktop. This personal seminar digs deep into the guts of Windows XP and is a valuable addition to any power user's bag of tricks.
