By now, everyone knows how to do the easy stuff in Windows. But what about the powerful, complex, or obscure tasks advanced users and administrators need to perform? Look 'em up in Windows XP Cookbook, follow the directions, and -- voilà -- done.
What kind of stuff? Speeding up system startup. Converting TIFFs to JPEGs. Disabling the WinXP SP2 firewall. Figuring out which process has a file open. Restricting access to shares. Protecting yourself at public hotspots. Viewing a user’s group membership. Scheduling reboots. Setting disk quotas. Improving Wi-Fi performance. Installing the IPv6 stack.
Oh, and troubleshooting just about everything: wired and wireless network connections, user account lockouts, local and Internet printing problems, CD reading and ripping failures, DNS trouble, audio and video problems, boot failures, blue screens, you name it. Fast, convenient, and highly recommended. Bill Camarda, from the October 2005 Read Only
