    Windows 7 Fastest Selling OS in History

    By anyweb,
    Microsoft presented the results for its second quarter of the 2010 fiscal year yesterday, which ended on December 29 2009. As it turns out, thanks to sales of Windows 7, Microsoft experienced a record quarter, which is especially welcome after the previous two lacklustre ones. It sold 60 million Windows 7 licenses during this record quarter.   Since I have no clue about these figures, I'll just copy them verbatim so I won't make any mistakes.   Microsoft Corp. today announced record revenue

    Posted by Ed Bott @ 12:05 pm   I just spoke with George Stathakopoulos, General Manager of Trustworthy Computing Security at Microsoft, regarding the ongoing security issue affecting Internet Explorer. (For background, see my earlier post, It’s time to stop using IE6. For an update on the vulnerability and its impact, see this Zero Day blog post from ZDNet’s Ryan Naraine.)   According to Stathakopoulos, a security update for all versions of Internet Explorer will be released “out of band” -

    By anyweb,
    The German government has warned web users to find an alternative browser to Internet Explorer to protect security.   The warning from the Federal Office for Information Security comes after Microsoft admitted IE was the weak link in recent attacks on Google's systems.   Microsoft rejected the warning, saying that the risk to users was low and that the browsers' increased security setting would prevent any serious risk.   However, German authorities say that even this would not make IE ful

    God Mode in Windows 7 not new

    anyweb
    By anyweb,
    There's a lot of talk around the net about a hidden God Mode in Windows 7,   but if you dig a bit deeper, you'll see that this is actually not new, this has been a feature since Windows 95.   By creating a Random name.{guid of shell namespace provider} this will give you a folder with that namespace. There are many such providers in the system.   For example, you could create "Bin.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}", which is a new recycle bin.
