I wanted to learn how to delete some programs from the start menu. The programs I was looking for were not in the start menu and there is no reference to be found in the Sybex as to what to do. A free daily "Kim Komando Tip of the Day" had the simple answer -- go to "Run", type in msconfig and go to the appropriate tab and uncheck the programs you don't want to have start up. After reading this tip, I then researched the Sybex book and there is no reference in its over 1046 pages about "msconfig"! There are other things that I have attempted to research and they are not be be found in this Sybex book.
I recommend that you spend a few more dollars and buy other an Sybex books.
This book is the Sybex classical. It is truly complete. My only wish is that Sybex should start attaching e-books to all her series: in the form of CD-ROMs; even if it means increasing the price a bit. Compared to its 1000-plus pages, this book is not heavy. But the extra flexibility a CD-ROM adds will gladden the souls of most mobile users.
