THE manual that should come WITH XP Pro...,
This review is from: Windows XP Inside Out Deluxe Edition (Inside Out (Microsoft)) (Hardcover)
Bin your silly 32 page pamphlet and save yourself XP aggro with this monster reference of a tome, it really has it all and shows how to strip out all the padding that XP comes ready fitted with, like the apple candy idiot mode.
If it wasn't for this manual, I wouldn't have found out about the speed sapping XP 'Services' (threads), of which there are over 30 of them, the majority unecessary.
Neither would I have been unable to disable Error reporting and auto update, two Microsoft boo-boos.
Yes its a Microsoft press book, but is free of toeing the party line presentation.
Beginners will be fine with this volume as u just start on chapter 1.
