Windows 8 : Security - Action Center
Windows 8 Action Center is a control panel that monitors your system’s configuration, notifies you when it detects a security or configuration problem, and can help you take action to remedy problems it finds. In most cases, Action Center sits in the background and doesn’t require intervention.
Windows 8 : Security - Windows Defender
Windows 8 is the first version of this operating system to ship with an antivirus/malware system installed by default.

Windows Vista : Exploring Expert File and Folder Techniques - Grouping, Stacking, and Filtering with Metadata
The Windows programmers seem to understand this because they built three new file-management techniques into Windows Explorer, all of which become more powerful and more useful the more metadata you’ve applied to your files. These techniques are grouping, stacking, and filtering.
Windows 7 : Troubleshooting Your Internet Connection (part 5)

If you’d like to learn more about troubleshooting hardware and resolving device conflicts, pick up the latest edition of Scott Mueller’s Upgrading and Repairing PCs, published by Que.
Windows 7 : Troubleshooting Your Internet Connection (part 3) - Identifying Software Configuration Problems
Software configuration problems can easily be the cause of Internet connection problems, and it’s fairly simple to determine that this is the problem—you can’t make any Internet connection whatsoever, although the Device Manager says your network card or modem seems to be working correctly.
Windows 7 : Troubleshooting Your Internet Connection (part 2) - Troubleshooting Step by Step
A functioning Internet connection depends on an entire chain of hardware and software components that reaches all the way from your keyboard to a computer that might be halfway around the world.
Windows 7 : Troubleshooting Your Internet Connection (part 1) - Before You Run into Trouble
The best tool to have on hand when you’re diagnosing Internet problems is information about what you should expect when your connection is working. If you collect this information in advance of running into trouble, you’ll save yourself a lot of time, trouble, and grief.
Windows 8 : Security - Windows Firewall
A firewall is hardware or software that examines network traffic and either allows the traffic to pass through it or blocks it, based on the contents of the traffic—the address it was sent to, the protocol used for the message, and the network port used to receive the message, among other things.
Windows 8 : Security - Safe Computing
Windows 8 is a very complex operating system that was designed to allow developers to do just about anything you can think of. Microsoft has certain rules of the road that developers and the programs they create must follow to keep users safe.
Windows Small Business Server 2011 : Recovering Backups (part 3) - Recovering the Operating System, Restoring a Backup Catalog

Using Windows Home Server’s Command-Line Tools : Understanding Batch File Basics (part 2)
Most command-line utilities require extra information such as a filename (for example, when you use COPY or DEL) or a folder path (such as when you use CD or MD). These extra pieces of information—they’re called parameters—give you the flexibility to specify exactly how you want a command to work.
Using Windows Home Server’s Command-Line Tools : Understanding Batch File Basics (part 1)
The command line is still an often-useful and occasionally indispensable part of computing life, and most power users will find themselves doing at least a little work in the Command Prompt window.
Windows 7 : Email and Newsgroups with Windows Live Mail - Finding and Reading Newsgroups
Usually, before you can read a newsgroup, you must first subscribe to it. A subscription simply means you’ve placed a bookmark of sorts in Windows Live Mail for that group, making it easy to return to and follow conversations whenever you are using Windows Live Mail.
Windows 7 : Email and Newsgroups with Windows Live Mail - Setting Up a Newsgroup Account in Windows Live Mail
Before using newsgroups, you have to set up a news account in Windows Live Mail. Windows Live Mail actually comes with a newsgroup already set up, called Microsoft Communities, but it only has groups that pertain to Microsoft products, so you can write in for support on Windows 7, Office, and any other products.
Windows 7 : Email and Newsgroups with Windows Live Mail - Using the Windows Live Mail Contacts, Newsgroups and the Internet
The terms newsgroup and Usenet are used almost interchangeably in today’s online world, but it is useful to know that newsgroup refers to individual groups, whereas Usenet refers to the entire network of groups as a whole.
Windows Server 2008 : Basic Rules When Using the Command Prompt - Understanding Variables, Understanding Switches
A variable is simply a placeholder for an actual value. You don’t have to know the actual value as long as you know the placeholder. For example, the location of the Windows Server 2008 operating system folder is usually c:\Windows, but it can be on another drive and even have a different name.
Windows Server 2008 : Basic Rules When Using the Command Prompt - Using Uppercase or Lowercase, Using Quotes

Windows 8 : Settings and Customization - Policies
A policy is a method for enforcing Registry settings and making sure that users can’t change those settings. Policy settings are most often enforced for a group of users, thus the term “group policy” is used.

When you change things in Windows, you write a value or set of values to one or more places in the Registry. When you install a component, it registers itself in the Registry.
Using Windows Home Server’s Command-Line Tools : Working at the Command Line
When you have your command-line session up and running, you can run commands and programs, create and launch batch files, perform file maintenance, and so on. If you haven’t used the command prompt since the days of DOS, you’ll find that the Windows Home Server command prompt offers a few extra command-line goodies.
Using Windows Home Server’s Command-Line Tools : Getting to the Command Line
When you’re working in Windows Explorer, you might find that you need to do some work at the command prompt. For example, the current folder might contain multiple files that need to be renamed—a task that’s most easily done within a command-line session.
