    Windows XP Bible 2nd Edition has extensive information

    After reviewing this book, it explained a lot of important topics that help in understanding various features of windows xp service pack 2. It gives comprehensive step by step instructions on how to get the most out of windows xp. If there is a topic I did not understand, I found it most helpful to look it up in its general category in the extensive index. I also found the illustrations useful while trying to follow along with detailed step by step instructions.

    A User Friendly Timeless Guide

    For those PC users who still use Windows XP, Alan Simpson's 2005 book, "Windows XP Reloaded Bible" is a very comprehensive user-friendly guide on the A-Z's of navigating through the XP program. It addresses audiences of all ages and abilities and is a must read for those who are holding on to that XP program and can no longer get the online updates from Microsoft.

    Especially helpful are the chapters on using the program "Movie Maker" and also dealing effectively with adware and spyware.
