The recommendations in this book work with XP, Vista, Win7, Win8 and Win10. There are a number of recommendations presented to keep your computer safe and productive while explaining commands, background and tools that you may not be familiar with, all intended to be done on the local system using only what is supplied by Microsoft to avoid the risks of after market "free" tools.

This book contains settings and practices proven over the years. If you should have to reinstall Windows, or migrate to a newer version, the tips provided will make it less painful and even allow you to dual boot to Linux.

The suggestions presented were developed through the author's experiences with Microsoft since the 1980's and computers since the 1970's. The solutions were learned in unique and complex settings, but apply universally. The author did not seek quick fixes to problems, but rather analyzed the root causes and determined a solution using available resources and settings.

There are limited options available to most corporate or home users. Many opportunities to solve problems were presented to the author in the support of complex engineering design systems and software development environments on a variety of operating systems and with advanced applications. Many of these large applications placed extreme loads on computers and pushed them to the limits. The problems encountered would highlight underlying configuration issues and if adjusted generally improved performance. In addition, the author has taught operating systems, computer science and electronics since the late '70's and works daily with Microsoft and Linux systems, solving problems for a lab supporting over 800 users. In the last few years the changes to Microsoft's security model revealed the importance of the NTUSER.dat which will be discussed in detail in Chapter Two.
