Top Windows expert Paul McFedries - one of PTG's most respected authors - dives deep into Windows 7, returning with the most powerful ways to handle everything from networking to administration, security to scripting.
McFedries begins with advanced customization -- covering everything from startup/shutdown to the file system. Readers will learn new ways to tune Windows 7 performance; police Windows via Group Policies; tweak the Registry; make the most of Windows 7's management tools; and control Windows 7 from the command line.
Next, McFedries presents thorough coverage of securing Windows 7, including chapters on web and email security, and hardening networks. Readers will learn better ways to troubleshoot devices, networks, and startup; add Macs to Windows networks; and much more.
The book concludes with three chapters of indispensable scripting techniques for automating Windows administration.

This book is packed with expert tips, tricks, and troubleshooting techniques drawn from McFedries’ unsurpassed Windows experience. If you want maximum value and performance from your Windows 7 PCs, you won’t find a more valuable resource.
