In Windows XP, every user is set up as an administrator by default (unless added through Computer Management). As a result, most home users ran all their software with Administrator access



File copy operations proved to be one area where Vista performs better than XP. A 1.25 GB file was copied from a network share to each desktop. for Vista with SP1 it took 2 minutes and 29 seconds User Account Control in Windows Vista improves this by limiting application software to standard user privileges until an administrator authorizes an increase in privilege level. In this way, UAC prevents users from making inadvertent changes to system settings and locks down the computer to prevent unauthorized applications from installing or performing malicious actions

Starts with Prefix “My” for Computer and document folders. Luna is the default visual style in Windows XP. It is available in three color schemes: Default (blue), Olive Green, and Silver. Windows XP Media Center Edition comes with Royale as the default theme.

The "My" prefix on "My Computer", "My Document", etc. has been dropped. In most editions of Windows Vista, the default theme is Windows Aero. Aero offers translucent window effects, as well as live thumbnails, animated transitions and Flip 3D. However, it requires a higher-end video graphics card, DirectX 9 support and 32-bit color; otherwise, Windows Vista is displayed using "Windows Vista Basic" visual style.

With Windows XP (and previous versions of Windows PE) configuration information was stored in various text files. Windows XP supported different languages in two ways. You could either deploy localized versions of Windows XP, requiring a different image for each language, or you could deploy an English Multilanguage User Interface (MUI) version with added language packs

These text files have been replaced with an XML file. Windows Vista, the entire operating system is language-neutral.

With Windows XP, technical restrictions prevented the creation of a single image that could be deployed to all computers. Different hardware abstraction layers (HALs) meant you had to maintain multiple images

In Windows Vista, those technical restrictions are gone; the operating system is able to detect which HAL is required and automatically install it.

WINDOWS VISTA NEW FEATURES.
Windows Vista offers a considerable number of new and improved features over Windows XP.

12

Windows Aero
Windows Aero: Windows Vista features a totally different look for its interface—a cleaner, transparent look with impressive graphic quality, not to mention Live Icons and the new Windows Flip 3D feature. Windows Aero requires a higher-end video graphics card; otherwise, Windows Vista is displayed using Windows Basic. Check with your computer manufacturer, or use the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor to see whether your video card is ready for Windows Aero.

13

USER ACCOUNT CONTROL
Windows Vista User Account Control (UAC): UAC is a new security feature that lets you operate Windows Vista more as a standard user than as a true administrator, where you have complete access to everything. Features that UAC protects, denoted with a multi-colored shield, require your permission or validation before you can access them.

14

START MENU
menu has evolved in Vista. At any time one can type search words, resulting in Search-As-You-Type functionality. This search leverages the broader search functions built into Vista. in the Vista start menu is the "All Programs," section. In Windows XP the All Programs list can become very unwieldy when you have more than ten programs. In Vista the programs list simply scrolls within the Start Menu like so:

Another change The start

LIVE ICONS
Live Icons: When you're using Windows Aero, you can hover your mouse over open windows in the task bar and see a live representation of what's running in them. You can get the same preview by using the Windows Flip 3D feature or even by pressing ALT+TAB to toggle windows and folders, which makes navigation much easier.

16

WINDOWS MAIL.
.Windows Mail replaces Outlook Express, the email client in previous Windows
versions. It has the Phishing Filter like IE7 and a Bayesian junk mail filtering, which is updated monthly via Windows Update.

.Also, e-mail messages are now stored as individual files rather than in a binary
database to reduce frequent corruption and make messages searchable in real-time. Backing up and restoring account setup information, configuration and mail store is now made easier. It does however omit some features of Outlook Express ,
such as identities and a "Block sender“ for Usenet

access. Windows Mail is
itself being replaced with Windows Live Mail.
17

WINDOWS CONTACTS
Contacts, a new unified contact and personal information management application, replaces Windows Address Book (WAB). It is based on a new XML based file format where each contact appears as an individual .contact file, and features extensibility APIs for integration with other applications. It can store custom information related to contacts, including display pictures. The legacy *.wab format and the open standard *.vcf (vCard) and *.csv (Comma separated values) file formats are also supported.
Windows

WINDOWS SIDEBAR:
Windows Sidebar: Windows Vista offers a panel (transparent, if you're using Windows Aero) that displays your selection of Windows gadgets—miniapplications that perform useful functions, such as a clock, a calendar, a Microsoft Office Outlook inbox representation, and currency exchange.

19

WINDOWS SEARCH:
of the most helpful new features in Windows Vista, you can now search for files or applications from almost anywhere.
Windows Search: One

20

Unlike in Windows XP, with Window Search, you can simply type a few letters of your search request, and the results appear on the fly—a helpful feature when looking for a file or application from the Start menu. For example, type fir, and WindowsFirewallentries appear in the Start menu.

WINDOWS CALENDAR

WINDOWS MEETING SPACE
Meeting Space, the replacement for NetMeeting, is a peer-to-peer (p2p) collaboration application. Users can share applications (or their entire desktop) with other users on the local network, or over the Internet.
Windows

23

Windows Meeting Space allows sharing of the desktop with other co-workers, distribution and collaborative editing of documents, and passing notes to other participants. Windows Meeting Space automatically finds other users using People Near Me, a technology that uses WS-Discovery to see other users on a local network.

Windows Defender
Windows Defender, formerly known as Microsoft Antispyware, is a software product from Microsoft to prevent, remove and quarantine spyware in Microsoft Windows.



It is included and enabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7, 24 and is available as a free download for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

WINDOWS DVD MAKER
DVD Maker is an application included in premium editions (Home Premium and Ultimate) of Windows Vista, and Windows 7 Home Premium and above editions that is designed to enable the creation of DVD movies that can be played using DVD playback software or on a standalone consumer DVD player. In some ways, it is comparable to iDVD in Mac OS X.

WINDOWS READY BOOST
Boost is a component of Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system. It works by using flash memory, USB 2.0 drive, SD card, Compact Flash or any kind of portable flash mass storage system as a drive for disk cache. Ready Boost is present, with fewer restrictions than in Vista, in the beta version of Windows 7.
Ready

26

Ready Boost is also used to facilitate Super Fetch, an updated version of Windows XP's prefacer which performs analysis of boot-time disk usage patterns and creates a cache which is used in subsequent system boots

NETWORK
PNRP is the one genuine new technology in Vista. Peer Name Resolution Protocol (PNRP) is like a poor man's DNS in that it allows hosts to discover one another. PNRP uses the Winsock 2 Namespace Provider API. Apparently PNPR only works on IPv6. Could be used for applications to find and connect with each other.

WINDOWS VISTA INSTALLATION
Step #1: Plan your installation:
make your installation of Windows Vista more efficient by helping you to avoid potential problems during installation. understanding of the configuration options will also help to ensure that you have properly configured your system. important things you should take into consideration when planning for your Windows Vista installation: Check System Requirements Check Hardware and Software Compatibility Determine Disk Partitioning Options Decide on a Workgroup or Domain Installation Complete a Pre-Installation Checklist After you made sure you can go on, start the installation process.
The most An Planning can

28

STEP #2: BEGINNING THE INSTALLATION PROCESS
You can install Windows Vista in several methods - all are valid and good, it all depends upon your needs and your limitations. This is the simplest form of installation - directly from the Windows Vista DVD media. So, insert your Windows Vista DVD media into your DVD drive and reboot your computer. A black window will appear momentarily while the DVD content is read.

29

STEP #3: THE GUI-BASED PORTION OF THE SETUP PROGRAM
Unlike previous

versions of Windows, Windows Vista does not have a noticeable text phase of the setup process, and it will boot directly into the Graphical User Interface (GUI) mode.
1.After

a few moments you will see the first prompt:

30

Press Press

Next unless you want to change some regional settings for the installation process. the Install now button.

31

After a short delay you‘ll be prompted to enter your product key:

32

Choose Your Windows Vista Edition that you need.

33

You now have to accept the license terms:

34

Next you need to press the Custom (Advanced) installation type button:

35

The Upgrade button is disabled because this specific installation if performed on a new computer without any previous operating system on it.

The next phase is to pick the installation partition. Since this computer has a new hard disk that hasn't been formatted before, you will only have the option to create a new partition on it. Had it had previous partitions on it you could have chosen to either delete them or perform other tasks. Pressing the Advanced button will bring up the following options.

36

Since we

don't need to perform any additional task we will just press on the Next button. The installation process will then create a partition on all the available disk space, and format it.

37

The setup process will now begin to copy files from the installation DVD media to the hard disk. This will take some time.

38

After

some time (the exact amount of time will greatly depend on your computer's hardware), the setup process will install updates for the operating system.

39

The computer

will then automatically reboot.

40

Now comes a long waiting period, where the installation process configures the system. Again, the exact amount of time will greatly depend on your computer's hardware.

41
After

the long wait, the system will then reboot once again.

You

will think something went wrong because of the relative long time it take the system to display anything besides the black screen, but finally, after a few moments you will note a small colored circle:

42

A few seconds after that you will be prompted to enter a username and password for the first user on the computer.

Although the setup program will let you continue without entering a password, note that it is very advisable to enter a password here, and the best option would be to choose a complex password made of at least 7 characters or more (something like P@ssw0rd or MYpa$$w0rd). Make sure you remember it.

43

Also

pick your user's display picture. This can be changed later.

Choose what

sort of protection your computer gets. The recommended settings are best for someone that doesn't plan to hide their computer behind a corporate firewall (and even then, in some cases, this would be the best option). If you plan to install a 3rd-party firewall later you can opt to be prompted later.

44

Note that this setting will also have effect on how the computer uses the Microsoft Windows Update (Automatic Updates) features.

Next

comes the Time Zone settings window. Choose your location.

45

WINDOWS VISTA REINSTALLATION
