    Great Book!

    I just received the book and CD. I am learning so much,it is perfectlly applicable to Dummies.I have been using Windows Vista for some time and think it is helpful to do so before getting the book. Tht way you will recognize some of the problems you would like to solve, like toolbars disappearing, web-mail closing without your request, desktop icons and what to do with them and on and on. I have not installed the CD yet, haven't read or browsed that chapter yet because I wanted a book I could read seperately from the computer. In case you don't know, Vistas does not come with a manual, therefore some assistance is definately needed for Dummies. Reccommend to others!

    I was disappointed.

    I perceive myself a computer novice and was looking for specifics to troubleshoot an issue I was having with Vista following upgrade from XP. I use so few of the features that much of the material was far too sophisticated and the concern I was having was not covered - no sound from speakers. No, not cable nor sound card nor speaker failure. My computer guru plugged speaker cable into alternate audio port (?) and voila! noise! (?) The DVD will probably be helpful eventually although he talks far too fast. I could profit from an intro classroom setting and I researched but none available locally. I'm an educated 74 years old and much impressed with this computer world but most materials I've found seem either too simple and superficial or infinitely more advanced and detailed. I could use a mid-range coverage of new software. Have kept the book handy, however, and have located some helpful tidbits.

    DVD IS POOR!

    The book is quite technical - a bit too technical for me!
    The display of an example on a desktop is out of focus. This is extremely distracting. Better no display than one that is out of focus.
