From the Back Cover

Is Windows XP making you feel like a 98-pound weakling? Is the bevy of security holes, patches, and networking gotchas making you want to reach for a revolver? If so, then you're like millions of others who are ready to install Windows Vista--the sorely needed revision to the world's most popular operating system. Maximum PC shows you how to get the most out of this dramatic improvement to Windows. Far from being a mere cosmetic makeover of Windows XP, Windows Vista has been reengineered from the ground up to provide a solid foundation for business, home, education, gaming, and multimedia users. We take the guesswork out of getting up to speed with Vista, and we do it without making you want to put your fist through the screen. Chock full of real world, hands-on solutions, Maximum PC Windows Vista Exposed will have you up and running in no time flat.

Here's what you'll find inside...
Coverage of Vista's all-new Aero interfaceThe skinny on Vista's new menu systemDeep coverage of new apps within Vista, including Windows Media Player 11, Windows Movie Maker 6, Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Media Center, and Windows DVD MakerHow to secure your PC with Vista's vastly improved security and user management featuresAdvice for protecting yourself from hackers, spammers, spies, and phishersDetails on new parental controls designed to help you protect your familyCoverage of a heavily revamped Internet Explorer, as well as the new, built-in email application, Windows MailSteps for setting up your own home network (wired or wireless) with Vista's much improved networking capabilities

By M. Cain on December 2, 2007
Format: Paperback
I have just finished this book, and was very impressed with how it opened my eyes to Vista. I have been very discouraged since I purchased my new computer with Vista on it-to the point of considering returning to XP. This book really helped me understand the basics of Vista and how it differs from XP. I have mainly had a hard time adjusting to the new network system that Vista uses, and this book really helped me understand. I would recommend this book to anyone new to Vista. It was very helpful.
