Quick Fixes For Windows 2000 Problems
Sebastopol, CA--For those who are faced with switching over to the powerful but often confusing Windows 2000, a new book release, Windows 2000 Quick Fixes (Boyce, O'Reilly, US $29.95) offers not just solutions to your problems, but a fast, easy way to find them. Designed with the power user in mind, this book is laid out for optimal accessibility; it defines problems clearly and follows up with concise, yet detailed, solutions. And while the book provides easy access to information, the material is by no means basic-it covers both common tasks and problems such as installation issues, networking configuration problems, and important backup and security solutions.
Newcomers to Windows 2000 who have children using their computers can quickly learn how to protect some areas without walling off the entire system. Old hands at Windows will learn quick and easy new ways to recover data or what to do when the administrator's password's been forgotten.
Unlike many of the oversized and poorly organized books on the market, Windows 2000 Quick Fixes doesn't waste time with endless tutorials, fluff, and useless background material. "The book focuses on very specific problems or situations that many users will run across when working with Windows 2000," says Boyce. "The material is focused to enable users to overcome problems and implement specific features without wading through the whole book to find the topic they need."
With its clear, well-organized fixes to common problems, Windows 2000 Quick Fixes is the book to reach for when the pressure is on and there's no time to waste hunting for buried solutions.Online Resources:
