Windows 7

Catching up on my blog

Posted on March 14, 2010. Filed under: Computer Virus and Malware, Windows 7 |

I have been so busy with multiple projects lately that I have neglected to post in a while. My latest project includes building a Windows 7 image, while getting familiar with the latest Microsoft tools, the Automated Installation Kit (AIK) and the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) kit for building and servicing images.

I must say that I was getting to be so tired of MS Windows, that I was looking for opportunities to switch any desktop or server to Linux. Not that I didn’t find plenty to gripe about in Linux. Then came Windows 7 and Server 2008 and my view has changed. I have been very impressed with both. I have been running Windows 7 since it’s release on a 3 year old laptop that wouldn’t run Vista. It runs at least as fast as Windows XP did on it. Did I mention that I didn’t bother to install any antivirus on it either? All I did was create an admin account, and keep other users as non admins. If any unwanted apps or malware attempted to install, I would get prompted for the admin password and I would just click cancel. No problems so far.

In an upcoming post, I plan to write more about my latest experiences wtih the Kace Kbox 1000 and 2000 appliances.

Stick around for more!

Windows 7 GodMode

Posted on January 6, 2010. Filed under: Windows 7 |

When I first heard of Windows 7 GodMode, I thought it referred to a vulnerability that allowed users to raise privileges. Instead, it allows you to have quick and easy access to Windows 7 and Vista Control Panel Applets.
