From a reader: http://sunlibrary.safaribooksonline.com/9780596806514/preface Section: "P.6. How to Contact Us" There is a catalog page for this book, which lists errata, examples, or any additional information. You can access this page at: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/9780596528003 The link above on that page is to the wrong book. It's to the Vista title not Windows 7. Below is the correct link to the Windows 7 book: http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596800987

Note from the Author or Editor:
Should be: http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596800987

Table 1-2

For the Parental controls feature, the table states that Windows 7 Professional does NOT have Parental Controls when in fact it does. In fact, the only version that does not have Parental Controls is the Enterprise Edition of Windows 7. This is even stated on Microsoft's website at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/features/parental-controls.aspx Otherwise, great book! I love it!

Note from the Author or Editor:
Windows 7 Professional has Parental Controls .
