Part of the bestselling "In a Nutshell" series, this book contains more information about using Windows XP than any other book on the market. Windows XP in a Nutshell, Second Edition, was cowritten by David A. Karp, author of the no-nonsense Windows Annoyances book series and creator of the popular Annoyances.org web site, and Tim O'Reilly, the publisher whose books have revolutionized computer book publishing with their common-sense approach, depth of detail, and focus on practical information that you can really use. In Windows XP in a Nutshell, Second Edition, you'll find: Everything you need to know about Windows XP Service Pack 2: setting up a WiFi network; mastering Bluetooth features; plugging security holes and configuring the new Windows Firewall for maximum protection; tweaking new Internet Explorer features; and more; Detailed information on virtually every command and utility available in Windows XP, including both Windows-based and command prompt-based applications and accessories (not just those in the Start menu); Detailed advice and documentation on system configuration, with extensive coverage of the Control Panel, the Registry Editor, the Microsoft Management Console, and the new Windows Security Center; A comprehensive guide to every setting in every dialog box, menu, and Properties sheet throughout Windows XP; A quick reference to keyboard shortcuts, special symbols, common filename extensions, and background services; Detailed advice on how to build a wired or wireless home or SOHO network, the best ways to connect to the Internet (including WiFi), and keeping your PCs and network safe from hackers, crackers, viruses, and more; Hundreds of tips, gotchas, and clever ways to do familiar and not-so-familiar tasks; A reference to the Windows Script Host (WSH), the system that lets you use VBScript, JavaScript, and even Perl to automate common tasks."@en
